Bring the Ancestral Knowledge outdoor education experience to your school, group, or organizations. We offer programs, presentations, field trips, and hands-on workshops that are fun and engaging for all ages.
Our Presentations are one of a kind! We present a combination of natural displays and primitive survival skills demonstrations. Our displays include handcrafted primitive tools such as; bows and arrows, natural baskets, utensils, cordage, stone tools, and much more. Our presentations are student interactive as we pass around many primitive tools and natural materials for discussion and investigation, at the same time engaging students with questions about each item. Finally we stimulate the students’ ancestral knowledge by involving them in a primitive skill, like a fire by friction demonstration in which we recreate the magic of primitive fire as if it was discovered for the first time.
We can come to your location for a half or full day of presentations.
Pricing: 1-3 hours $375, 4-6 hours $525
Our field trips take you deep into the forests of our local park systems to explore the ecosystems within. While participating in our field trips the students are assured to lean several nature based skills including; animal tracking techniques, nature awareness, plant and tree identification, and basic survival skills. Students will also learn how to move in the forest properly to increase animal sightings. Toward the end of the trip several primitive skills are demonstrated including fire by friction and basic stone tool making. Time permitted, the students will have a chance to try their luck at making a fire by friction, the way our ancestors used to do it.
