Burning on the inside - Canvas Print
Burning on the inside. A fire or bitja (fire in Yorta Yorta) taking hold of our countries core.
Our ancestors used fire to control the land and its gifts. As Yorta Yorta Elder Uncle Colin Walker said
“We're cautious, because as our elders said ‘fire is a good servant but a bad master’ — so we do it carefully, in sections.”
Cultural fire is a critical land management tool and a profound expression of ongoing connection to place for Aboriginal people. Empowering Traditional Owners to manage Country through traditional knowledge is a practical exercise in self-determination that will help safeguard Australia.
The profound impact Aboriginal peoples in Australia have had in shaping and managing landscapes through the application of, what many of their Elders refer to as, the right fire.
This attention is well overdue and there is now growing interest from the community and media in cultural burning.
Aboriginal peoples' application of fire was complex, systematic and purposeful and became a powerful firestick technology, enshrined in ceremonial practice deeply connecting them to the land and all living things in and around them in a kincentric ecological world view.
