Echoes in Time 2020 (Online)
A Gathering of Past and Present Place-Based Traditions
Echoes in Time is a week long ancestral skills conference held every
July in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and the Traditional Territory of the
Kalapuya, near Monmouth. Due to COVID-19, Echoes in Time will be taking place online this year. Our mission is to unite people from
different demographics, communities, and backgrounds, through the
sharing of common traditions of place-based ancestral living skills.
Participants enjoy 5 days of learning
various skills from the “stone age” to the “iron age” (basketry, bows
& arrows, wild edible plants, pottery, black-smithing, stone tools,
felting, animal tracking, and more). This is an excellent family
adventure and no previous experience is required. In this age of
ever-increasing technology and globalization, the skills of
preindustrial people are being forgotten. Come remember them with
us. Echoes is a program of Rewild Portland, a nonprofit organization. Rather than have a tuition for this year, we are having a "pay what you can" on a sliding scale basis to help us raise the funds we normally use to subsidize our free programs and our scholarships for our tuition based programs. Please donate what you can! Thank you.
