Abstract: We study the free Lie algebra $L$ over a field of non-zero characteristic $p$ as a module for the cyclic group of order $p$ acting on $L$ by cyclically permuting the elements of a free generating set. Our main result is a complete decomposition of $L$ as a direct sum of indecomposable modules.
