Not sure I would say I am proficient at any, but I have experience with building shelters, fiber harvesting and production,basket/container making, tool making,canoe building, clothing, hide tanning, some medicines, and food-gathering/preservation.
I would love to practice what I already know, but would especially like to learn more about hunting small game, medicine and food plant identification and preparation, and water harvesting. I am sure there are many things I need to know that I don't even know I need to know...that's why I'm here!
For a one-day event, I could handle 100 miles; for a weekend event, 200.
I moved to NC from NY in '03 and I would like to meet people interested in primitive skills simple living. I taught Native American studies and culture in NY, interpreted 16th cent. life in an Onondaga fishing camp at a living history museum.
