Ancestral skills, nature connection, and fun for adults and teens from the Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities
The Rewilding School is a nature connection organization that also teaches many ancestral skills. These skills have been stolen from their original instructors, and today their practice is often stigmatized or viewed as dangerous for folks of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. Therefore we offer a Reparative Roots program for adults and teens of BIPOC communities to explore ancestral skills like foraging, fire making, shelter building, fishing, tracking, crafting, spoon carving, survival techniques, archery, and more.
We sincerely ask only people who identify as a member of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities to register for this reparative ancestral skills program. Families can attend, each person must register. Kids younger than 5 will stay with adults, kids older than 5 will have a separate kids activity.
