What is this about?

Stories of Bushfire Recovery - Aboriginal Culture and Healing focuses on Aboriginal peoples’ recovery following the 2019-20 Eastern Victorian bushfires. Events like bushfires have a significant impact on Aboriginal Victorians. Pre-existing inequality and historical intergenerational trauma are further complicated by the impact that bushfires can have on Country and cultural heritage.

Each of the projects profiled in this booklet received funding under the Bushfire Recovery Grants for Aboriginal Communities. These projects highlight the importance to acknowledge, respect and promote Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities’ collective knowledge, and their connection to their Country.
