Born and raised in northern Minnesota, Nate likes to craft the crafts, know the plants, eat the mushrooms, make the tools, trap the animals, tan the hides, weave the baskets, catch the fish, fiddle the fiddle, sing the songs, watch the birds, work the woods, sew the clothing, knock the rice, make the canoes, and bend the snowshoes. Nate has traveled the continent studying wilderness living, traditional crafts, natural building, wildlife tracking, botany, birds, mushrooms, and ancient skills in general. He now makes his living sharing his learning with others.
