Are you a First Nations person keen to start your Cultural Fire journey?

Firesticks is upskilling the next generation of practitioners through our Indigenous Fire and Land Management Mentoring Program. We support communities in building their capacity regionally to reinstate cultural knowledge practices through Firesticks practitioners, Elders, community leaders and local knowledge holders.

  • The knowledge practitioners grow includes:
    Acknowledgement of Country through cultural knowledge and protocols.
  • Applying Cultural Fire across different ecosystems and unhealthy landscapes.
  • Cultural ecological monitoring and research of Country.
    Applying knowledge practices to improve agricultural and economic livelihoods.
  • Reading Country to understand best practice in creating solutions for restoring the indentity of ecosystems.
  • Learning cultural harvesting practices that restore Country and enhance social enterprise opportunities.
  • Sharing knowledge through a community mentorship methodology that restores cultural knowledge on a national scale.
