Primitive/Ancestral Skills groups/Knapp Ins?
« on: February 06, 2016, 02:30:27 AM »
I've never been to a knapp in. Google turned up several classes/schools, and large multi day events, but I would like to find a smaller group locally or semi locally that I could link up with once a month. Does anyone know of such a group or a specific site where I might find such a group?

Nor sure if the CT in your name means your from Connecticut of not but if you are you can find some resources at Mohegan Sun Casino in the museum or call them. If not you can check with your local archaeological groups and attend a meeting. As for smaller groups my suggestion would be to attend some events or meetings. That way you can meet some of the folks and then perhaps at a later date break into smaller groups. I only say this because I am on the hunt for the same exact thing lol! If I pick up anything as far as websites go I will pass them onto you.

Pete, he's from Yakima Wa, area
wish i could hook you up Jeremy, you might try the college over in Eburg...they may know of a group or program in your area.
You also might check with the Yakima tribal council down on the reservation...there was a fellow there once upon a time, me and my partner used to sell tee pee poles too him.
He was farmiliar with and taught traditional skills and customs ...can't remember the fellows name...but give em a try...though i still think the college is a good place to start...woods
