Winter Count: Reflections From The Wilderness


Primitive Perspectives


Winter Count is a primitive skills gathering in the desert of Arizona. I was there for the past three years. This episode highlights some of my reflections from that experience. I believe you will gain some unique insights into the contrast between wildness and domestication. I hope you enjoy this exploration.

Winter Count is a primitive skills gathering that has been taking place every February in the stunning Sonoran desert of southern Arizona since 1995. Instructors and students spend one week together sharing their enthusiasm and knowledge of skills such as fire making, archery, basketry, hide tanning, pottery, flintknapping, and much more. Winter Count is known for the high quality of its instructors and small class sizes.

Winter Count is a "conference " style event that was started for instructors and people in the field of primitive living skills, experimental archeology and survival skills to come together, spend time with their peers sharing knowledge, offering their skills and hopefully, having a good time.
