Echoes in Time Skills Gathering
near Portland, OR

Echoes in Time is a week long ancestral skills conference held every July in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and the Traditional Territory of the Kalapuya, near Monmouth. Our mission is to unite people from different demographics, communities, and backgrounds, through the sharing of common traditions of place-based ancestral living skills. Participants camp out on private property and enjoy 5 days of learning various skills from the “stone age” to the “iron age” (basketry, bows & arrows, wild edible plants, pottery, black-smithing, stone tools, felting, animal tracking, and more). This is an excellent family adventure and no previous experience is required. In this age of ever-increasing technology and globalization, the skills of preindustrial people are being forgotten. Come remember them with us. Echoes is a program of Rewild Portland, a nonprofit organization.
