Blazing the Trail: Celebrating Indigenous Fire Stewardship


Blazing the Trail: Celebrating Indigenous Fire Stewardship, is a beautiful, bound publication that recognizes the contributions to wildfire prevention of Indigenous communities in Canada.

The glossy, 47-page book is the culmination of a FireSmart Canada partnership with Natural Resources Canada and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

Blazing the Trail is both a resource and a treasure; its detailed, first-person stories provide insight and context about Indigenous Peoples and fire stewardship, and the narrative encourages celebration and sharing of wise practices and lessons learned across generations.

The publication acknowledges that Indigenous communities have been leading, in many ways, fire mitigation and prevention.

An important outcome of Indigenous fire stewardship is wildland fire risk reduction, which aligns with FireSmart Canada's organizational mandate,

Blazing the Trail: Celebrating Indigenous Fire Stewardship is designed for leaders at all levels in Indigenous communities, from local youth to elders, fire keepers, fire knowledge-holders, Indigenous elected officials, fire chiefs, and senior community managers/administrators.

In the spirit of allyship, non-Indigenous agencies that work alongside Indigenous communities across Canada will also benefit from Blazing the Trail: Celebrating Indigenous Fire Stewardship.
