Fire Country: Indigenous Fire Management Practices

26 September 2022
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm (AEST)
Online (via Zoom)

with Victor Steffensen, in conversation with Ross Williams

Victor Steffensen’s book “Fire Country” was released in February 2020. The book outlines how the revival of Indigenous fire management practices, including improved ’reading’ of country and undertaking ’cool burns’, can help to restore our nation. Released just after the horrific 2019/2020 bushfires caused unimaginable damage, killing billions of animals and traumatising communities around Australia, Victor’s book became a best-seller, and has become influential in helping Australians rethink and come to terms with, Australia’s relationship with fire.

Indigenous and non-indigenous perspectives, with Mary Graham, Ross Williams, and Michelle Maloney

How the heck are we human beings in industrialised societies going to cope with the types of societal changes heading towards us, due to climate change? While we see a significant focus and debate about the role of renewable energy and technology in transitioning us away from fossil fuels and reducing carbon emissions, we’re seeing less discussion about the deeper issues around our culture and our expectations of Mother Earth.
