A podcast about Blak Sovereignty. In our first episode we yarn with Wunyungar [ Alwyn Doolan ] who initiated Nation Dance, a national mass movement in December 2019. It was an act of sovereignty that saw over 100 nations come together to dance on country at the same time.
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.

We acknowledge the lands on which we live and work, cared for by our traditional custodians for 80,000+ years. We move together against the continuing genocide and colonisation of our peoples. Our sovereignty was never ceded. We endow deep respect to the bloodlines of this country.

Working with mob across our countries to decolonise, addressing the systemic racism that continues to perpetuate trauma for our peoples and lands. Truth telling is an epic part of decolonising.
