Fire is an important symbol in Aboriginal culture and was traditionally used for environmental practices to help preserve the land. Fire management was a way in which Aboriginal Australians protected country and is often called cultural burning.
(Aboriginal symbol for smoke, water flow, lightning or bush fire)
