Passionately in search of how to connect the world of the hunter-gatherer with that of the subsistence farmer, Neal Ritter is a jack of all trades. He carves spoons, makes bows, brain tans for his family, pursues the art of wildlife tracking, plays games like a fiend, makes heavenly sourdough bread, and teaches all these skills and more at the Laughing Coyote Project.

Saami Bags

These beautiful pouches come from the Saami reindeer herders of Scandinavia.
We will be working with brain tan and bark tanned deer skins and fish skins to sew a colorful and useful bag.
