The Elders invited me to record the story of traditional land management with fire that has been successfully practiced across our continent for tens of thousands of years. This is their story. Told in the hope that we can transform the way we view our connection to the land and with this pay respect to the expertise of the Traditional Custodians of Australia as leaders in land management."
