‘Camp Fire on Country’, depicts the Indigenous tradition of story time about the campsite. Family gather, prepare, cook & share food & stories. These stories connect us to each other, the land & our ancestors. It’s a special time where all family come together, young & old and speak of the knowledge from long ago, given to them, as well as sharing stories from this day. Our ancestors walked this land that we sit together on & we feel their presence as we retell the stories they imparted to us. Fire is also an important responsibility used for seasonal burn offs & as the custodians of the land, we hold this responsibility
