9 JULY 2023

Week 15 A few weeks back I attended a Cultural Burning, hosted by the Upper Mooki Landcare Group at “Cultural burning is a cultural fire practice used by First Nations people to improve the health of Country and its people. It has been used for over 60,000 years to manage land, plants and animals. The dispossession of land and loss of identify has meant that cultural burning has not occurred over large parts of Australia for many generations, but there is increasing awareness of the important role it can play in the mitigating the effects of extreme bush fires caused by climate change.” For me, it was a chance to be enlightened to the deep respect shown to the land by First Nations people.
