Native California tribes find healing in cultural burning practices

During the fire season, flames can mean danger for communities in harm's way. But for thousands of years, native California tribes have been harnessing the power of "good fire" to keep their land productive. "It's really important to set up those cycles and maintain them with the cultural objective of procuring something from that plant or from that ecosystem," said Ali Meders-Knight, an enrolled tribal member of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe.
