    DECOLONISE. EP.3 Yarnin with Barkaa

    Black Sovereignty is in Our HandZ. In our third episode we yarn with Barkaa, a proud Wiimpatya, Barkindji, Malyangapa, Noongu powerhouse sister cutting a fresh voice from Blacktown in NSW. Barkaa shares the motivation behind her killer heart-driven lyrics. A mother of three and backed by a potent blak matriarchy, she allows insight to her vision.


    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. Black sovereignty is about the wellbeing of everyone: Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous: we all need to take part.

    About Decolonise: Jaja Dare (Wiradjuri) is ablaze with the exploration of how we move forward as a nation and believes an epic part of decolonising our systems is the internal revolution, a deep commitment to self-responsibility and healing. Systemic racism continues to perpetuate trauma in this country, for our people and our lands. The system is cracking and it is up to all of us to listen deeply. It is time for our country to evolve into what is not only possible, but necessary.

    DECOLONISE. EP.1 Yarnin with Alwyn Doolan.

    WHAT IS BLACK LEADERSHIP? Black Sovereignty is in Our HandZ. Our lands everywhere are hurting and we are being called on urgently to start 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. Black sovereignty is about the wellbeing of everyone: Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous: we all need to take part.


    In our first episode we yarn with Alwyn Doolan who initiated Nation Dance, a national mass movement on 1 December 2019. It was an act of sovereignty that saw over 100 nations come together to dance on country at the same time.
