Winter Survival, Tracking, & Primitive Skills

For those that have learned with me before, this course builds on all the survival skills and foundation we have built up to this point.  At the same time, there will be completely brand new skills that are best suited for wintertime.  Students will learn the basics of animal tracking and begin to form an understanding of animal behavior and winter ecology.  The skills we work on are designed to develop awareness of both the external and internal landscapes.

Some things we will be working on:

-Leatherworking & Moccasins

-Winter Survival Shelters

-Cordage Baskets

-Primitive Slings

-Tracking Identification / Interpretation

-Storytelling

-Traps

-Making primitive containers

-Fire Building

-Flintknapping

Winter is an essential time of the year to deepen our understandings of ourselves and our connection to the land around us.  When it comes to winter survival, the margin of error becomes narrow.  We must truly understand the subtleties of the skills that sustain us.  The emphasis of this course is to cultivate quality understanding and refine our relationship with the earth.
