Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross, French Polynesia


Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross is from French Polynesia. In her mid-thirties, she became an activist when she realized that her leukemia was a legacy of the 193 French nuclear testing in the South Pacific. She conquered her blood cancer and became a collector of unheard stories of suffering and ignored medical records.  In doing so, she put pressure on the French government, which to this day lacks accountability. Hinamoera fights for recognition, medical care and financial compensation for victims. In May 2023, she was elected to the Polynesian Assembly of Representatives.
