Event Details

Fox Walkers is an ongoing program designed for home-schoolers and public school students. As a Fox Walker, your child will gain hands-on instruction in the ancient arts of wilderness survival, animal tracking, and nature awareness.

Led by founder Rick Berry, Fox Walkers exposes children to the stories and teachings of Grandfather Stalking Wolf, a Lipan Apache elder who wander the western hemisphere for 60 years and handed down his teachings to the well-known author and teacher Tom Brown, Jr.

At Fox Walkers, we weave Grandfather’s philosophy of Earth-living into all the skills we teach. We also incorporate the traditional wisdom and local indigenous life-ways shared by Grayson Coney (Tsi-Akim Cultural Director), Don Ryberg (Tsi-Akim Maidu Tribal Chair and on the 4EEE Advisory Board), Marshall Merino (fluent Maidu speaker), and Lawrence Laughing (tradtional long house singer).

Our Fox Walkers curriculum subtly engages students in a spontaneous flow of interactive learning opportunities that: 

  • Strengthen powers of concentration, observation, and endurance
  • Provide access to deep reservoirs of self-confidence and self-knowing
  • Cultivate intimate, respect-full relationships between students, the Earth, and all who dwell upon her
  • Empower, inspire, and prepare students to become active, responsible caretakers of the Earth

As a result, Fox Walkers experience a different type of education. Encouraged to sit and read nature like an open book, they are rewarded by the magic of the natural world. At Pata Panaka Village, they learn how to care-take a home – where the bedroom is the bark hut and the living room is outside. They refer to going up and down the hill as “upstairs” and “downstairs”. They begin to have a deep understanding that the Earth is our home, that our home is much bigger than they once thought, and that care-taking this home is a great honor and responsibility.
