Bushcraft Expedition in the Amazon Jungle
A Unique Cultural Immersion with One of the Most Remote Tribes on the Planet!
What does bushcraft mean to those who rely on the so called “Bush skills” in daily life? To explore this question, Nick Gordon of NOW Outdoors along with Joe Flowers of Bushcraft Global took a truly one of a kind cultural immersion deep in the Amazon Jungle. Indigenous men and women became our teachers and the jungle was our classroom. These men and women are from tribes only recently contacted and met us hundreds of miles down remote rivers to share their rich culture and insights to living in the jungle.
While working through extreme language barriers, we focused on a variety of crafts and skills such as blowgun making, bows, traps, baskets, machete skills, canoe paddle carving, fire building, shelter craft and more. We participated in ceremonies never before filmed, explored wildlife both day and night, and even learned to make curare poison and joined in hunts with the Matis, learning how they spot and stalk monkeys while wielding 12 foot blowguns. Join me for this first ever presentation with photos, artifacts, and stories from the Amazon!
