Thank you for visiting us!
Native Studies is a Texas based sustainable living school that studies and teaches skills from cultures all over the world.
Both our online and onsite wilderness education courses draw on traditions from indigenous cultures world-wide. These courses emphasize nature as teacher / mentor, routines to enhance awareness, storytelling, self-motivated learning, and tracking as an interpretive tool.
Our passion is to provide opportunities and options to our students whether in everyday life or in a survival / disaster situation. This is done by preparing them both mentally and physically by instilling skills of proactivity, resourcefulness, and awareness through primitive skills and sustainable living. For a comprehensive education, our students (for both online and onsite) begin their journey with the Basic Survival Class. The Basic class lays a firm foundation in self-sufficiency and self-reliance through the basic 4: Shelter, Water, Fire, & Food, then branches out into a myriad of courses…
- Online Distance Learning
- Nearly all onsite courses available FREE online
- On Site Wilderness Survival Classes
- Urban and City Survival
This knowledge is useful and applicable to any lifestyle, even that of a city dweller.
Our courses combine ancient and modern ecological wisdom, and empower people of all ages to become stewards, mentors, and leaders. Beyond the basics of old skills, we also work to provide students with the means to pursue other important skills, such as language, storytelling, mythology, biology, science and much more. We do this in part by making available many valuable and hard to find texts, books, videos, etc., for free to the public, whether you are an existing student or not.
Our goal for each individual is to address the needs of each student and provide the highest quality teaching possible.
Ultimately, we work with our students to give them a sense of Freedom, Confidence, and Connection wherever you are.
