Our Mission

Primitive Lifeways is committed to the preservation of Native American culture, languages, and the archaeological data recovered to keep the past alive. We recognize Native Americans as successful individuals who have endured and triumphed before, during, and after hard times. Furthermore, we see Native American people as artists, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and good stewards of wild lands.

The Goal

In 2019 the earth’s population grew to 7.7 billion people and analysts predict that number will continue to climb at a more rapid pace. With new cities being built throughout the world, our disconnection to the natural environment and archaeological resources becomes prevalent.

Our goal at Primitive Lifeways is to educate the general public about our rich history that dates back thousands of years ago. We aim to preserve and protect our natural resources while also inspiring future generations to learn about ancient civilizations whom conducted their lives in ways we are still discovering today. Primitive Lifeways strives for a healthy balance between modern scientific procedures and traditional practices that have been used by our early ancestors around the planet. With your help and kind contributions, we will continue our journey in natural preservation efforts.
