DECOLONISE. EP04 Yarnin with Boe Spearim

June 16, 2022

A podcast about Blak Sovereignty. In our fourth episode we yarn with Boe Spearim,  a proud Gamilaraay and Kooma brother on a deep journey thru his work as a broadcaster and the voice behind the Frontier War Stories, revealing the truth of the traumas that are still living out on our lands.

Our lands everywhere are hurting, and we are being called on urgently to ignite this healing process. Our lands need to be well for our people to be well. Our ancestors are waking us up and we are responding.

Decolonise is about the wellbeing of everyone: Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous. We all need to take part. It’s time to Decolonise. Time to unsettle the settler. Time for our internal revolution.
