Sara-Maya Kaba: Ghunghroos around my ankles and hockey skates on my feet

“Ghunghroos around my ankles and hockey skates on my feet; this is the life of a diaspora-born child. I speak the language of Pakistan, train in an ancient dance form of India, and play a sport native to Canada – simultaneously belonging partially to each place and yet completely to none. This is my expression of my mixed identity.”

Sara- Maya Kaba, Canadian born based out of Calgary is currently studying at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. She made this video as part of a dance project she recently worked on in school.
