A night by the fire: anti-recognise with Boe Spearim

kuril dhagun’s A night by the fire talk series returns for 2015 to raise awareness of the national Recognise campaign and the fight for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian constitution. As the Recognise campaign sweeps across the nation and builds momentum leading up to the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum, kuril dhagun will bring in different speakers each fortnight to voice their opinions and discuss key issues surrounding the movement. Boe shares why he is anti-recognise, and how he came to that conclusion.

Bogaine ‘Boe’ Spearim was born in Blacktown, NSW and spent most of his childhood growing up in Western Sydney before relocating to Brisbane, where his father taught him about identity through dance, song and connection to his Gamilaraay country. Since moving back to Brisbane, Boe has become heavily involved with the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy (BASE), which has deepened his understanding of the issues Indigenous Australians face today and ignited a desire to speak out about these struggles.
