Let’s walk through a Restoration Forest and learn how fire replenishes the land and provides food and homes for animals and ourselves. Before the newcomers came to this land, there was a healthy eco-system, taken care of by Indigenous peoples who knew how to use fire wisely. Among many First Nations, there were fire chiefs who had the knowledge and gifts wrapped in the relationship with earth and fire. Today, there is still a strong relationship with fire and ceremony, including the fire keepers at the sacred Sundance Ceremony.
