Breakfasters: An Introduction To Indigenous Fire Management With Victor Steffensen

Over his 27-year-long career, Indigenous land management expert, filmmaker, musician and consultant Victor Steffensen has aimed to prevent major bushfires through Indigenous fire management practices. He shares his story in the new book Fire Country: How Indigenous Fire Management Could Help Save Australia (out now through Hardie Grant Books). On Breakfasters, Victor tells us how he first became interested in First Nations’ fire knowledge, what the key aspects of those fire management practices are, and how this informs our recent fire season.
