Trephina paints Burning Grass, which is an important aspect of traditional living. Indigenous communities would burn their land to promote the regrowth of vegetation, including young grasses that attract kangaroos to hunt, as well as to back-burn areas so that large, dangerous bushfires could not sweep through the land and threaten communities. Indigenous knowledge of when and how to back-burn is detailed and valuable, and, in some areas, has been incorporated into contemporary land management strategies.
