This is a story that will take you into the high mountains of the Sawtooth Wilderness, where a group lived for one month as humans have for thousands of years, nourished by wild foods, walking the mountains with pack basket, buckskin clothes, bow and arrow, and digging stick, while finding shelter in cave and hand-made debris huts. “Living Wild” touches the depth of our humanity, illuminates the possibility for thriving community, resilient culture, and personal transformation, while fostering a life sustaining relationship with the mountains. Daniella will share a journey based on “rekindling ancient knowledge and honoring the earth as a living organism, while transforming the gifts of the natural world in order to provide food, shelter, and clothing” (Vilden). The presentation weaves together photography, story, and poetry, breathing life and personal experience into the foundations of deep ecology, eco-psychology, ethnobotany, anthropology, and sociology, offering a refreshing and profound account of “Living Wild”.
