For thousands of years in the Great Lakes Region, Native Americans used fire intentionally to manage the ecosystems they lived in. This short film, Oshkigin: Spirit of Fire highlights this deep, reciprocal relationship with the land and the role fire plays in that relationship. This story is told by Ojibwe Wildland firefighters, Fond du Lac elder Vern Northrup, and Damon Panek. For more information, visit: https://minnesotafac.org
