The purpose of this group is to provide a meeting place for anyone interested in learning, practicing, and/or teaching Native ceremonies, culture, traditions, survival techniques, and indigenous arts and crafts from the United States and around the world.

As a new group just starting out, I am hoping to bring people with similar interests together to share their knowledge and learn from each other. If you know how to tell the difference between a wolf track and a domestic dog track, or if you are brand new and don't know the difference between a pine tree and an oak tree, this group is for you.

If you have no interest in wilderness survival or primitive skills, but you are interested in attending, participating, or supporting a ceremony, this group is for you too.

If you have no interest in the ceremonies, but you want to learn how to make fire by friction, cordage from plant fibers, or what wild plants are edible, great!

In order to promote attendance we intend to keep events free to the public. Donations are not required but are appreciated.

Please don't let money be an issue. Participation is more important.

Ultimately our goal is to obtain 50 acres of wooded land near St. Louis, Missouri, to learn, practice, and teach traditional Native ceremonies, traditions, and survival skills from the United States and around the world, to anyone willing to learn.

On this land we will have a place to teach a variety of skills, such as flint knapping, tracking, brain tanning, fire by friction, and identifying and preparing edible and medicinal plants. We will have sweat lodge, vision quest, and chanunpa (pipe) ceremonies. We will practice traditional dance and music. We will make drums, rattles, dream catchers, medicine wheels, bows, arrows, clothing, moccasins and jewelry.

Help up bring back the old ways.
