Summary

Aboriginal women have played a significant role in care for Country through Cultural Burning for thousands of year. Over the past 250 years, women's connection to this ancient practice has been impacted by colonisation and the displacement of people from their ancestral lands. We look forward to a future where Aboriginal women across Australia are provided opportunities that strengthen their connection to Country and allow for the continuance of culture, knowledge and storytelling.

Challenge

Australia lacks real investment into Indigenous Fire Practices and Indigenous led solutions to caring for Country. Investment should focus on creating pathways for place based and Indigenous-led targeted measures to increase participation of Women in Indigenous land and fire management.

Solution

Supporting Women to engage in Traditional Fire Practice leads to transgenerational participation which means more skilled Indigenous Communities with Knowledge to put healthy fire to country. The large-scale adoption of Cultural Burning and traditional land Management practices across Australia will deliver social and economic benefits that will help to close the gap, and help change perspectives of all Australians to proudly embrace and respect Aboriginal culture

Long-Term Impact

The strengthening of a network of professional Indigenous Women's Fire Knowledge Practitioners across Australia, working with Traditional Custodians so, under their authority, we can return our land to a Healthy Country. Transfer of knowledge through generations of Mothers, Aunties, Sisters, Grandmothers and Daughters learning and applying fire to Country will mean the continuation of cultural, spiritual and practical significance for Aboriginal people.
