Indigenous woman firestick burning in outback Northern Territory.

Photographer's Name: 
Jonah Ritchie

I travelled with the Central Land Council to the remote town of Kintore in the Northern Territory. We lived and worked in the town for some time and would go out on country each day with elders and children of the local Pintupi community. I think this photo is relevant to our times as it shows the difference in cultural practice and property rights in Australia regarding landscape/ bushfire management.
