"Traditionally fire played a major role in our lives - we used it for cooking, warmth, ceremonies and healing. Our traditional ways of managing the land used bush fires to keep our country clean, to preserve our ways of hunting and gathering food. Controlled burning created new growth from plants which made sure that plants regenerated and food would be available."
