Ancient Pathways, LLC - School of Primitive Technology and Wilderness Skills Survival Courses [Flagstaff Arizona]

Traditional Living Skills Course

Drawing on the fields of archeology, natural history, and primitive survival, students will learn and apply documented aboriginal skills which have been used in the Southwest for thousands of years while living in the wilds. The first 6 days are spent at our basecamp learning traditional skills such as friction firemaking, primitive cooking, plant uses, shelter construction, carving and knifework, animal tracking, primitive hunting and trapping, flintknapping stone tools, making jerky, braintanning deerhides, carving bowls, and exploring the amazing high-desert landscape. We will also visit nearby prehistoric ruins and tour an ancient pueblo site used by the Anasazi to better understand the context of the skills we are learning. The remaining 4 days are spent on the trail relying on our skills and newly made implements while traveling the canyonlands of northern Arizona. Gear and food will be minimal for this phase and we will fish and forage to add to the group meals while living closely with the land. Limited to 8 people.

This is given as a 10 Day Course.
Check the course calendar for specific dates.
Includes meals, all materials, park permits, and instruction.
