Rabbitstick Primal Skills Conference draws many to learn survival skills

MADISON COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) - Many from far and wide met in Madison County this past week to live off the grid.

They met at Rabbitstick Primitive Skills Conference to mirror what life was like back in ancient times.

Those who attended got to mirror what life was like back in ancient times and learn some critical survival skills.

They learned how to create fires, weave baskets, forging from the land and that's just the beginning.

One survival teacher says she loves these skills that our ancestors have passed on through generations.

"I was interested in biology more about building a relationship with the living world around me than just studying it in books. And to me, the primitive skills and ancestral skills are a way that we can kind of bring together our knowledge of the natural world with our ancestral, our deep dna. That's all about using the the resources around us to make a beautiful, integrated life."

While Rabbit Stick did conclude Friday, you still can have a chance to meet with Woniya.

She will be at the Idaho Falls' Barnes and Nobles Saturday at 2 p.m. to sign her book or answer any questions.
