Ngadju country covers a significant part of the region known as the Great Western Woodlands in south-western Australia. This region is nationally and internationally signifi cant for its large, relatively intact expanses of eucalypt woodlands, shrublands, salt lake systems and mallee. To enhance Ngadju opportunities to be and work on country, and inform ecological management of the Great Western Woodlands, Ngadju Conservation and collaborators initiated this project to document Ngadju knowledge about fire in Ngadju country. The project also aimed to explore current aspirations of Ngadju around fire management. It was undertaken through a series of workshops and field trips with Ngadju during 2012–13. Historical records were also used to complement what Ngadju told us.
