Being on Country, learning by observation and sharing.
It’s like a natural process for us, as indigenous people on our own land, we feel it in our blood, our soul, or our spirit. We sit around the fire, we tell our stories, our dreamtime stories and we tell our children. I like to sit down with my grandkids and tell them all the stories as well, not only how the old people used fire in the past but also through history.
