The Bushfire and Natural Hazards Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) has developed a booklet on cultural burning, collating Aboriginal stories from Southern Australia. Six illustrated posters accompany the booklet, outlining the varied, and often unheard, experiences of Indigenous people, with a focus on women’s stories, in cultural burning practices.
As awareness grows of the role of cultural burning in managing healthy Australian landscapes, this resource highlights the variety of experiences of cultural burning across southern Australia. The collection of stories testifies to the diversity of approaches and experiences in cultural burning and demonstrates the role it can play in healing the damaged relationship between Aboriginal people and their Country.
