Our primitive skills gathering is similar to other such gatherings, offering fundamental skills such as friction fire making, flint knapping and cordage classes daily.  We will also hold classes on nature awareness, tracking, basket making, gourd craft, edible plants, fermented foods, bowl and spoon carving, traditional bow and arrow making, etc.  Each day will be full of skills and conversations.  Each evening will feature musical performances and festivities around the bonfire.  Please bring instruments, songs and stories and be willing to share your talents with our community.
