Giant City State Park
On Saturday, November 5th from 1-5pm join Mark Denzer and follow
the progression of humanity’s relationship with fire!
Take a look through ancient and modern lenses to discover how we have manipulated
this powerful element through time. From ceremonial and ritual uses to transforming
landscapes and mundane daily uses, fire has been our partner since time immemorial.
After the lecture, participate in hands-on training. Mark’s 25 years of experience with
primitive technologies and experimental archeology will guide you in your own
experience of creating fire. Through friction, percussion, and tool use, you will gain first
hand experience in ancient ways and join an ancient lineage of honoring fire!
