Very special thanks to Natasha Lavdovsky for this great photograph! ^^^ That's our official mission statement!
The following projects & events are being developed & are not in a finished state, however they do portray the direction of our work. Distance is developing these while hoping to acquire these resources. She & Kevin are on the road hitchhiking, using coffee shop WIFI to get this done, & sleeping wherever possible, so any help is very much appreciated. We'll be filming all these events & sharing the footage asap, & hope the potential for these projects excites you as much as they do us!
If you would like to help develop WildLivingSkills.org, please check out ***Database Builders!***.
Please also get involved with learning the teacher who helped make all this possible-- Richard Lonewolf! Here's his website:
***www.RichardLonewolf.com*** is the official website in-the-making of a man who helped make WIld Willpower possible! It has been & still is a top priority for us to help Lonewolf find people who really appreciate what he has to offer! A successful Richard Lonewolf means that Wild Willpower is accomplishing one of our *top priorities*-- helping Native American wild living skills teachers find their place among the modern world-- fully appreciated among our communities as vital community assets worthy of economic success. Richard Lonewolf is helping to bring the knowledge of our ancestors back into the hearts, minds, & daily lives of people everywhere. Please visit his site, coordinate to hire him as a teacher, & tell him that WIld Willpower sent you!
Pending the acquisition of some vital resources, Nevada City Wildharvesters will be hiring a slough of people to bring wild foods (acorn flour, California Buckeye nut flour, pine nuts, +++) from Tahoe National Forest to make available to each of our Bright Green Sponsors. We will always be using positive-impact harvesting techniques so that the health of the ecosystems will only see benefit by way of harvest. We'll be utilizing clean-burning woods & ancestral cooking techniques to maximize upon fuel efficiency, & we'll be constructing Squirrel Domes in order to provide comfortable shelters while preventing out of control wildfires-- a great community asset for surrounding communities. Our team will be trained by Richard Lonewolf & we will also of course be working to establish a wonderful, mutually-beneficial relationship with our local U.S. Forest Service Rangers.
***Cashmere for the Homeless*** is a bi-weekly event where Distance Everheart will be teaching people to craft highly-efficient, all-weather outdoor gear using a combination of traditional native & original techniques. You don't have to be homeless to craft gear with us! EVERYONE is welcome, & we're primarily looking to help gear up Nevada City Wildharvesters so they will be able to live & travel comfortably while harvesting for our communities among the Tahoe National Forest. We'll begin gathering regularly as soon as we receive enough donation leathers, silk, cashmere, fur, & alpaca fibers. To donate: Distance@WildWIllpower.org OR 415-798-7457.
