A podcast about Blak Sovereignty. In our fifth episode we yarn with Jimmy Kyle, a mad Thungutti brother, frontman of the band Chasing Ghosts. and Author at IndigenousX. You will often see Jimmy repping a tshirt that says “Teach Blak History.
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.
About Decolonise // spearheaded by Wiradjuri woman and creative powerhouse with an aptitude for innovation, Jaja is ablaze with the exploration of how we move forward in the continuing invasion. 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.
