First Fires Gathering
October 9 - October 13
First Fires is a time of year when our ancestral villages would begin to light the first fires for their home lodges, crafts would begin, and activities to keep your mind and spirit busy would commence.
The First Fire Gathering will be a 5 day experience with multiple workshop blocks, demonstrations, and night time music and storytelling around the ancestral fire!
A variety of earth skills workshops and demos will be available to choose from including friction fire, hide tanning, basket weaving, wild-tending, wild foods, open fired pottery, bow making, herbal medicine, foraging, natural healing, flintknapping, buckskin sewing, subsistence farming, permaculture, native watercraft and much more! 618-201-4090 email@example.com
