In alignment with the G20 summit, members of Brisbane’s indigenous community gather at Jagera Hall in Musgrave Park to prepare for a week of demonstrations and protests to bring attention to Indigenous rights and decolonisation.
The hall was used as a hub where members of the indigenous community from all over Australia had come to stay and prepare for the protests. Musgrave park has been an important meeting place for First Nations people since time began as it still is today. It is also the home to the sacred fire which represents the site’s spiritual significance.
An Aboriginal smoking ceremony also took place at the park which is believed to have cleansing properties and ward off bad spirits.
