Mantracking

 

We will be known by the tracks we leave behind.

                                                     --Dakota Proverb

 

The art of tracking has been around for as long as humankind has walked the earth.  One could argue that tracking was as important to mankind’s survival as farming or the discovery of fire. Author, Louis Liebenberg, has suggested that tracking is, indeed, the “origin of science.”  Our ancestors used tracking to find food, keep track of their enemies, and to make sense of their world. 

The art and science of tracking has survived, with tracking knowledge being passed down from tracker to tracker from ancient times to the modern day.  Tracking is currently being used in search and rescue, law enforcement and the military.  Many persons study tracking to increase their innate awareness and to improve their outdoors skills.

Whether you want to experience ancient skills first hand, or you wish to find a missing person, inquire today about taking a tracking class.
