S.A.L.T.'s primary goal is to understand, practice and share all life skills and arts of the ancient world. This is accomplished by regular Skills Meetings and informing the public through various Events.
S.A.L.T. is a diverse group of people with a desire to understand their ancestor’s life skills. Regular friendly gatherings are held on the third Saturday of each month to help each other to become proficient in skills such as Cordage, Fiber, Friction Fire, Bone and Stone Tool production, Shelter, Archery, Atlatl and much more...
S.A.L.T. HAS A NEW HOME starting on May 18, 2019
Pueblo Grande Museum
4619 E Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85034
Some of the Ancient Skills worked on are:
Stone mauls and axes, flint-knapped projectile points (arrow heads, spear points & knife blades) – make and haft them to their handles, fore-shafts, arrows or darts.
Primitive bows and arrows - make and learn how to use them.
In learning how our ancestors survived and thrived, we can appreciate the fantastic spirit they possessed. We learn to use our hands, which many of us have forgotten. We come to know a simpler way of life and learn that simple does not always mean easy. We strive to share as many of the life skills of our ancestors as we can. We want to show people that this technology belongs to all of us worldwide.
You are alive today because your ancient ancestors lived this life…
Atlatls and darts/spears – learn to make and use these ingenious weapons that have been found throughout the world.
Friction Fire – learn how to make and prepare your friction and percussive fire sets and make fire with them.
Fibers – prepare, spin and twist plant and animal fibers into yarn, string/cordage and make functional items with the material.
