Margaret Hendrie

Margaret Hendrie (née Griffith, 1935–1990) was a writer from the Oceanian nation of Nauru. Hendrie wrote the Nauruan language lyrics for "Nauru Bwiema", the country's national anthem. In preparation for the country's independence ceremonies celebrated in 1968, Hendrie's lyrics were adapted to music composed by the Australian musician Laurence Henry Hicks.
