As part of the 2021 Beaker Street festival, Nunami facilitated a panel discussion with Tasmanian Aboriginal fire practitioners – Andry Sculthorpe, Baden Maynard and Fiona Maher.
It was great to hear the history of cultural burning in Tasmania, the process of reclaiming and reinvigorating that knowledge here in lutruwita and how scientific understandings both contrast and compliment cultural burning regimes.
