Katarina Taikon

Katarina Maria Taikon-Langhammer (1932–1995) was a Swedish author with Romani roots, who for many years fought for the rights of Romani in Sweden. Just like many other Romani of her generation, she didn’t attend school but had to learn to read and write as an adult. She was awarded ABF’s literary prize in 1964. In 2012, Natur & Kultur published Katarina Taikon’s biography, written by journalist Lawen Mohtadi.
