Alafia River Rendezvous

Our group of 9 adults and 17 kids, learned about broom making.



This lady taught us everything there is to know about brain tanning a hide.

Never knew that you use the brain of a deer to tan the hide of the deer, lots of emulsified fats to assist in the tanning process.

The kids also got to stretch the hide.


She also taught us how to create a fire from a soft and a hard wood.

I forget the names of the woods. 

She definitely needs to go on Survivor! 

She made her fire in less than a minute!

My kids and I thought that was pretty cool!
