Transport yourself back in time and unleash the adventurer in you by spending two days learning the very skills that have been keeping humans alive for tens of thousands of years. These activities foster a greater awareness and appreciation of how our ancestors once lived. In this experiential, hands-on, outdoor course, Matt teaches several skills common to all indigenous cultures that are also applicable to modern day use.
Topics will include:
- Fire by Friction: learn how to create and use a bow-drill fire-making set, the all-powerful tinder bundle, the fire triangle, and how/why using fire as a tool is critical.
- Natural cordage: learn how to create string using natural materials such as yucca and dogbane.
- We discuss the importance of shelter and how the five laws of heat gain and loss will help your decision-making process for shelter location.
- Additionally, stone tools, dead-fall traps and wooden containers are created and discussed.
