Our vision is to pass on and teach our collective experience and knowledge of ancient earth based skills. We want to help people connect with the natural world through learning about what is around them, and using those things. We want to give people hands- on experience and a basic set of skills so that anyone can feel confident enough to know how to handle a situation if they ever got lost in the woods. With that, we feel the importance of remembering and practicing these earth-based skills so that we continue to honour the natural world and the Indigenous People all over the world who lived in accordance with the earth.
We honour and recognize that this course is taking place on unceded Squamish land. We have permission from hereditary Chief Bill Williams of the Squamish nation to use the land.
