Indigenous Ways
Tamara Wilder

Explore hunter/gatherer skills long used by people all around the world.  Being aware and comfortable with fundamental living skills through which humans have thrived and existed in harmony with nature for multiple tens of thousands of years, such as making fire and string, brings with it a deep appreciation for true sustainability.

These "first" technologies, which also include stone tool making & tanning animal skins, provide the foundation of all the developments that have  since followed.  As humans we are born with our brains and hands as our main tools.  We then use these tools to make or work with most everything else that we need in order to survive: food, water, air, fire, shelter, clothing, other people.

Someone raised in hunter gatherer society is intimately aware of the life cycles and characteristics of the plants and animals in that area.  This discussion introduces these ways of understanding the intricacies of the resources surrounding us in abundance, and how to easily, accurately, and sustainably select and shape those materials into the tools that they might need.

Tamara Wilder has been practicing, teaching & demonstrating Paleotechnics since 1989 and has been running "Intro to Ancient Living Skills"school programs across Northern California since 1998.

She regularly teaches at the California School of Herbal Studies, Occidental Arts & Ecology Center, Pt. Reyes National Seashore & the Northern California Women's Herbal Symposium; hosts kids beadmaking areas at the Great Handcar Regatta and WordUP! Fair, is coauthor of the bookBuckskin, and demonstrates ancient living skills for museums & fairs. 
She is also featured on the History Channel in the Modern Marvels show entitled "Leather".
