WAYS OF THE ANCESTORS provides educational programs in Primitive Technologies and Ancient Lifeskills. Skills our ancestors used on a daily basis, such as braintanning deerskins, friction firemaking, flintknapping, edible and medicinal plant use, primitive cooking without utensils, and primitive weaponry can all be learned by studying with our instructors.
Since the beginning of time, our ancestors have lived close to the Earth. Born without fur or claw, they had to learn to use nature's gifts in order to survive. Secrets hidden in the leaves, the trees, the rocks, even the Earth itself made life easier for those who were able to unlock them.
Primitive Skills Classes, Braintan buckskins
Ways of the Ancestors provides programs and demonstrations in Primitive Skills which were practiced by people all over the world for thousands of years. Regardless of your heritage, somewhere in your lineage members of your family knew how to tan deer skins using the animal's brain, how to start fires by 'rubbing two sticks together,' and how to make functional tools from native stone. Now you, too, can reconnect with your past and learn these skills long-neglected and nearly forgotten by modern man.
Programs are custom-designed for any age group, from pre-school to adult; from school-day presentations to weeklong camps. Contact us with your special needs and we can help tailor a program to meet the needs of you and your group. We are based in North Georgia but have traveled extensively throughout the United States.
