STEAM Week: Indigenous Science Film
Hear how Indigenous knowledge is informing our understanding of fire management and the practices and management of natural systems.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are the oldest continuous cultures on Earth. The wealth of knowledges gathered over 65,000 years has grown and continued relevance to modern scientific discoveries.
Join Indigenous knowledge holders, researchers, innovators and industry experts to explore the power of shared ideas in a screening of ‘The Many Facets of Fire’ from the “Looking back, moving forward’ speaker series presented by the Australian Academy of Science.
Fire has been a crucial force in Indigenous communities throughout Australia for thousands of years—for many, it is a sacred element representing a connection to their ancestors, land, and traditional way of life.
Hear from Mr Dean Yibarbuk and Dr Jeremy Russell-Smith as they discuss fire from a range of perspectives.
