The Cultural Burning Knowledge Hub is a place to find information about how Traditional Owners use fire in the landscape. The Hub provides links to a range of documents, websites, organisations and events.
Cultural fire is fire deliberately put into the landscape authorised and lead by the Traditional Owners of that Country for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to, ceremony, protection of cultural and natural assets, fuel reduction, regeneration and management of food, fibre and medicines, flora regeneration, fauna habitat protection and healing Country’s spirit. —Victorian Traditional Owner Cultural Fire Strategy
We acknowledge and respect Traditional Owners as the original custodians of the Earth’s land and waters, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom ensures the continuation of culture and traditional practices.
We are committed to genuinely partner, and meaningfully engage, with Victoria’s Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities to support the protection of Country, the maintenance of spiritual and cultural practices and their broader aspirations in the 21st century and beyond.
