As a result of horrific fires in Australia, Aboriginal Traditional Owners are building a coalition of Aboriginal Fire Lore holders who are Sovereign Peoples of their nations to be accessible to the wider community, to the Rural Fire Service in each State and Territory, and to you.
Why: Because the Federal and State Governments of Australia have failed to protect land and its own citizens, animals and environment which we all share.
How: Rural Fire Services needs to imbue Traditional Owners practices, knowledge and land systems into how they manage land, and there is always resistance or financial constraints to do this adequately in each neighbourhood, local council, state area or national park.
Traditional Owners are taking back the leading of this issue using knowledge, and want to make it accessible so there are NO MORE excuses.
This will mean the public, the community and the RFS can find and access Traditional Owners to begin to prepare adequately for the next month, the next summer and the next years while the world turns and hopefully, politics reorientate their focus to land and people and not profit and corporates.
All of the Traditional Owners involved already teach Land Lore, Aboriginal Practice of Land Care and Reading Country in schools, groups, community, and even to the RFS.
We are doing this work now, and with this campaign, we can build that presence and the effectiveness in extending it and making it a daily practice.
This is the Aboriginal Land Lore offering its gift of Country Care to Australia.
This support which we hope will reach 10Million or more will allow Traditional Owners to lead their nation in joint regional and national approaches to Land Lore and it people's care.
This is the alternative to giving to Government that keeps getting polluted by big business.
If you value fresh air and running water, trees that help us breathe then support Aboriginal People and their nations leading with you and for you in bringing back the eath to wellness to support its people.
Aboriginal people did this well for over 70, 000 years there have been problems for the last 230 years and we can be that solution.
Climate Change is an Emergency and is a real threat, and we can't keep giving and supporting a management model through government when we have clear evidence it is failing and does not care enough.
Let us teach your children, teach your community and let's begin again...
Support Traditional Owners in leading a prevention plan against the damages of Climate Change.
Currie Country is a Traditional Owner Cousin Consortium and will work with and share all funds raised equally with other Traditional Owners who are committed to Land Lore and Practice.
Currie Country is in partnership with Kooma Traditional Owners, whose Country sits atop the Artesian basin, western Queensland.
