Fire Stick Farming helps to explain the history and some of the traditional land management practices held by the First Nations' People of Australia. Fire Stick farming has been done for many thousands of years in Australia. The plants and animals are fire tolerant and also in many cases, dependent on fire for germination and growth. This outline is based on the narration from Lance Short and secondly, gives some background to bushfires in Australia.

Lance Short is from Brisbane, Queensland. He is a Wulgurukaba man from the Townsville area of North Queensland. Their totem is the carpet snake and they are called the 'canoe people'. Lance and his father have promoted the importance of Fire Stick Farming to reduce the severity of Australia's bushfires.
