Who is The We Are Fire Toolkit for?

The We Are Fire Toolkit is intended for readers who want to return, continue, expand or support Indigenous-led uses of fire on the land, particularly though not exclusively in the Saskatchewan River Delta.

For example, the Toolkit is intended for

  • Indigenous communities, organizing groups and leaders such as Métis communities, First Nations communities, Tribal Councils, trappers and Indigenous land guardians;
  • land users such as land managers and natural resource management practitioners;
  • orders of government such as municipal and regional governments, provincial/territorial governments and the federal government, including conservation officers, policy analysts and decision-makers;
  • Indigenous and non-Indigenous fire management practitioners, wildfire science specialists, fire managers and senior management/executives, including national and provincial/territorial wildfire agencies; and
  • Educators (in secondary and post-secondary settings) interested in applying learnings from the We Are Fire Toolkit to develop or expand on Indigenous-led and informed land-based learning and fire science curricula.

When using the We Are Fire Toolkit, it is important to recognize that readers will be at different stages of their journey regarding Indigenous Peoples’ relationship with fire and land and Indigenous-led uses of fire on the land, particularly in the Saskatchewan River Delta.
