The mission of the Cultural Fire Management Council (CFMC) is to facilitate the practice of cultural burning on the Yurok Reservation and Ancestral lands, which will lead to a healthier ecosystem for all plants and animals, long term fire protection for residents, and provide a platform that will in turn support the traditional hunting and gathering activities of Yurok.

"Fire is about new life.
It purifies, and when the Spring comes around...grass, birds, everything is real enjoyable, new and fresh. The deer, elk, and all wildlife come to the burned areas."
