Centre of Excellence for Prescribed Burning

Traditional Owners and cultural burning

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay respect to them, to their culture and to their Elders past, present and future.

The depth of First Nations peoples' spiritual and cultural knowledge and connection to Country is highly valued. Engaging with Traditional Owners should be carried out with respect to their ownership of their knowledge; delivering environmental, social, cultural and economic benefits for Indigenous people.

The documents and links on this page support these principles.
