Why Primitive Skills?

Humanity lived by using these skills for hundreds of thousands of years. It is only in the relatively short past that they have been abandoned by most cultures. Ancient survival skills give you a freedom, whether you want to feel safer in your outdoor activities or whether you see there is real potential to need them to survive in the future.  Through knowing these skills people can build shelter, make fire, clothing, tools and find the food and water they need to survive without having to buy anything from the store. We just need to walk outside and nature provides for all of our needs.

Tropical Foraging and Survival in St Croix The Wildlife Series Ep 1 Part 3

Submitted by marita on Wed, 02/12/2020 - 10:27

In Part Three we see how Matt, Carmen, and the island are recovering from the storm, make a huge tropical feast from foraged food prepared with primitive style cooking methods, and learn how survival skills and experiences can shape our minds. The WildLife is a passion project Sarah and I are doing completely on our own, please share the video if you like what you see. As I get better at film making, the episodes will get better too! We are trying to decide where, who, and what to cover next.
