Skills For The Hunter Gatherer Lifestyle

5.00 out of 5 [2 Votes]

Did you ever dream about living as a wild hunter gatherer?  Someday (when the kids are off to college and this business become stable) I hope to go spend time living in the wilderness.  As a modern woman, I am hardly capable of it though.  So I’ve picked up a  “hobby” of learning the skills of our paleolithic ancestors; how to make fire by friction, tanning deer hides with the brains, primitive hunting, processing wild edibles… .

One of the places where I am developing the skills for this imaginary journey is at a gathering in the Sonoron desert called Winter Count.  And it is coming up soon:  Feb. 9th-15th, 2014.

    Yes, I’d love to see how they do it in your area. I attend and teach at Rivercane and others in my area. I don’t think I’ll ever learn it all. Maybe you know some close friends, Raven and Coyote who attend the western events. One day I’d like to venture there too.
