About Fox Walkers
Fox Walkers is an ongoing program designed for home-schoolers and public school students. As a Fox Walker, your child will gain hands-on instruction in the ancient arts of wilderness survival, animal tracking, and nature awareness.
Led by founder Rick Berry, Fox Walkers exposes children to the stories and teachings of Grandfather Stalking Wolf, a Lipan Apache elder who wander the western hemisphere for 60 years and handed down his teachings to the well-known author and teacher Tom Brown, Jr.
At Fox Walkers, we weave Grandfather’s philosophy of Earth-living into all the skills we teach. We also incorporate the traditional wisdom and local indigenous life-ways shared by Grayson Coney (Tsi-Akim Cultural Director) and Don Ryberg (Tsi-Akim Maidu Tribal Chair).
Our Fox Walkers curriculum subtly engages students in a spontaneous flow of interactive learning opportunities that:
