    there is a great website called native american tech. ( www.nativetech.org) Its the basic for artcraft to clothes making and other great resources from native americans. I love studying about indian bushcraft because they are the best in wilderness survival and art. Basically, survival is a form of art. There is also inquiry (www.inquiry.net), another site. It concentrates in bushcraft art, navigation, games, food, shelters, trapping and snaring and other skills. Its between the westerners and indians activities. If you can help me with other great websites that is similar, which would be much appreciated.

    I'm curious , I looked at the site and didn't see anything in it about making bows or sling shots . I've heard of a device called a stone bow and am looking for a site that details the construction of such a device . I've read that Fredrick Remington (the painter in the 1800s) described stone bows in his travels among the native american tribes . He reported that they took up to fox size game at about 90 yards . The bow shoots small stones or marbles instead of arrows . I believe the clay marbles would be much easier to make than an arrow and if you are foraging you would be more likely to be bagging small game than large game .

    I would like it to be known that this list is now my challenge. I will at least attempt to build of these. Can't say I will actually do it 100 percent perfect but I will try.

    It's sad but so few people make things anymore.
    In my time I have worked with Stone, Metal, Wood and plastics. Designed and build Large radio Controlled Aircraft, repaired and modified Cars, rebuilt Motorcycles from the bare frame, built Structures and Sheds, made Fishing Poles and flies and a multitude of things.
    But, these days most seem to want to buy ready made.
    Very few seem to know how to Knit, darn and repair clothes or any of the older skills.
    Times have changed and so many skills have been lost. Most younger people would much rather play on their computer or be on their cell phone.
    As a boy I spent many happy hours fishing and camping on a river island. I would Kayak with my friends and learned so much about wildlife.
    But sadly those times are gone for most and people hate to be in a bad reception area.
    Is there anything we can do to turn this around, to inspire folks to make things for themselves and acquire new skills?
    Imagine a world where nobody makes anything anymore and does not know how to repair anything. They will be exploited by those who can.
    Case in point, a few weeks ago I met a Guy who told me he was charged $50 to have a wire re-soldered on his electric guitar. It was just a very simple re-soldering job...nothing special !
