Looking After Country With Fire: Aboriginal Burning Knowledge with Uncle Kuu

Mother Nature has a language. If we listen, and read the signs in the land, we can understand it. 

For thousands of years, First Nations people have listened and responded to the land and made friends with fire, using this knowledge to encourage plants and seeds to flourish, and creating beautiful places for both animals and people to live.

Join Uncle Kuu as he takes us out on Country and explains cultural burning. Featuring stunning artwork by Sandra Steffensen, this is a powerful and timely story of understanding Australia's ecosystems through Indigenous fire management, and a respectful way forward for future generations to help manage our landscapes. Looking After Country with Fire is written by Victor Steffensen and read by Tamala Shelton
