Native American Survival Wisdom
« on: August 19, 2010, 05:13:58 PM »
I've been wondering how we can learn the Native American ways of survival.  Any suggestions?

To whom it may concern, Augonit gave me permission to chage the topic name from Native American wisdom to
Native American Survival Wisdom...
All The Best,

Perhaps a necessary habit to learn, in primitive conditions, is to keep your eyes and ears open and your mind aware of the environment.  And, move/sit quietly and stay unobtrusive.

A minor example:  When I was a young boy, my family lived at an isolated location in the high mountains of Colorado for five summers and one winter.  I did not realize how profoundly that environment molded me until, many years later, while a friend and I were walking along a cliffside near a beach, I heard some rustling in the low vegetation nearby.  I said something like "what was that?" and she said "What was what?"  Then it struck me: country people listen to sounds and city people block them out.

Very good point jimfarmer, since moving to Baja 5 yrs ago from a city environs I hadn't even thought about all the wonderful sounds of nature I am now so accustomed to hearing here until reading your post. Makes me appreciate them all the more now.

I think the main thing with native Americans is they used all their senses, smell, touch, hearing, seeing, inner senses and so on. Something we have a tendency to ignor.Also staying in the moment not spending all their energy on the past or future. Those are skills that would serve us well. IMHO

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
