TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH AT 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET
Over the past few years fire season has plagued the West Coast. These fires have taken lives, homes, native plants and animals, and thousands of acres of land. The solutions to these disasters can be found in the history of the West, in Indigenous knowledge and practices. Historically, Indigenous peoples have utilized fire in order to care for and upkeep the land.
In this World WEAver workshop Edward (Redbird) Willie will discuss the basics of fire ecology in California and the factors that have contributed to the West Coast fire season. He will dive deeper into the longstanding relationship natives have had with the land and its inhabitants, fire ecology, and how Indigenous ancestors were able to live in a healthy and sustainable way. He will go over practices that helped them steward the land and give some actions that we can take as a community to help contribute solutions to the current climate.
