As a boy growing up I could find flint arrow heads, pottery, and tools of stone in the fields around my home. These artifacts were all evidence of a Native American culture long gone from the area. As I matured, so did my interest in how the native people lived their day to day lives. I began to make many of the tools and weapons and use them to hunt, prepare food, and live comfortably in the woods.
In 1992 the assistant principal of a local middle school asked if I was willing to share my ‘experiential archeology’ with his students. That was the start of the “Native America Living History Program”. By incorporating my Christian beliefs into the program I was able to develop Wild About Christ Ministries.
As part of the W.A.C. presentation I dress in the traditional clothing of a Woodland Indian, and demonstrate the use of the bow and arrow, blow-gun, tomahawk, atlatl, and fire starting with flint and steel and bow drill. I also demonstrate the many uses of river cane by the indigenous people of the Southeast. To increase the interactive nature of the presentation the audience will see and handle many real and reproduced artifacts.
For over twenty years I have worked with organizations such as the Department of Natural Resources, Department of Parks and Recreation, National Wild Turkey Federation, Boy Scouts of America, and many church groups and school systems throughout the country. Through these organizations I have been able to share primitive culture, wilderness survival skills, and answer God’s call to share His word.
This program allows me to touch men’s hearts and make them “Wild About Christ” with a powerful testimony that is a unique blend of God’s Word and tales of wilderness adventure.
