Buckeye: April 28 ~ May 4, 2024


In all of our histories are ancestors who crafted by the rhythm of the seasons and generations.  Buckeye is a gathering for collective reinvigoration of place-based lifeways.


We invite you to join us this coming Spring as we gather again to learn to integrate older ways, to begin to fathom what a village might be like for us today, and to see where inspiration takes us!

A Family Oriented All-inclusive Event

We encourage a family-oriented, all-ages event that emphasizes skills and materials indigenous to California, while welcoming talents from all over the map as well. Choose from a wide range of classes every day; enjoy the fire and activities together at night; share food, song & dance. The main fire is our camp central, with field and forest for camping in tipis, tents, vehicles, and under the stars.

At Buckeye, you might find craft and skill workshops such as:

Traditional ecological knowledge

Friction fire

Plant fiber cordage

Stone, bone & wood tools
