Twin Eagles

Tim Corcoran addressing the group...

Twin Eagles Wilderness School, based near Sand Point, Idaho, draws from nature and indigenous methods of instruction to help children gain a deeper sense of connection to the land. It was founded by a husband and wife team, Tim Corcoran and Jeannine Tidwell. I met Tim and Jeannine a few weeks ago at the Bioneers Conference and received an invitation to their harvest festival.

Rhonda, the kids, and I drove to Sand Point this afternoon and enjoyed learning about their cultural and educational programs. We saw examples of traditional fire making, pit cooking, games, and indigenous crafts. It inspired me to re-think old ideas about teaching traditional arts to Native American kids. More to come...
