ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you're looking for a way to spend this weekend outdoors, Chehaw might have the answer.
Starting Friday morning, Chehaw will offer traditional skill gathering sessions.
Twelve instructors from across the country will be on hand to teach attendees primitive skills used by native peoples across the world.
These skills include, making bone tools, bows and arrows, making a fire by friction, pottery and more.
The public's request for these classes has Chehaw organizers excited for this first of its kind course.
"It kind of connects you with the earth, you understand where everything you need still comes from. It's not from the grocery store, it still comes from this earth. The overriding theme is take care of this earth, it's where we live," said Natural Resources Manager Ben Kirkland.
Primitive camping is also included with the event, along with breakfast, lunch and hot showers.
