About the Project

“MAATHAAW: The Fire Within Us” is an Indigenous-led research feature-length film that documents the cultural, emotional, and scientific relationships of Southern California Tribes with the gift of fire. Emphasizing a reclamation of traditional ways to inform current fire management practices, this effort will bring Indigenous voices to the forefront and acknowledge their leadership in climate adaptation and resilience. This is a story that will serve as an example of the transformative efforts in advancing climate adaptation planning and actions occurring in the Southwest by highlighting the continued resilience and vibrancy of Indigenous communities and practices. Project is currently in production with an anticipated release in Spring 2024. Consider DONATING to this important film at this link:
