To quote, Simon Brascoupe, who offers an emphatic challenge for First Nations, to create self-actualized positive change and resilience in his words “[rekindle] the fire”:
[Fire] enabled our ancestor’s to be warm, manage large territories, and connect spiritually. Many Aboriginal communities are on journey’s searching for the fire of their ancestors that will reawaken their values, ceremonies and teachings. Aboriginal Peoples are on a journey back to the fire. (Brascoupe as cited in Dickason & Long, 2011, p.381)
