Who We Are and What We Do
What is a Wild Human?
A Wild Human is a person who has chosen to revert to and reclaim their authentic human nature, by refusing to be fully domesticated, by living adventurously and creatively, and by being willing to explore outside the bounds of mainstream dictates.
Wild Humans build bridges between ancient and modern human life ways (for example by learning both wilderness and urban survival skills), in order to search for personal empowerment, to build grassroots community, and to go on capers and adventures of our own wild designs.
The Wild Human Initiative is an open network of wilderhumans and those who love us. We are all about promoting personal empowerment through anarchism, nomadism, survivalism, rewilding, green anarchism, and related life ways. We are promoting cultural transformation through deep ecology, peaceful nonviolent resistance to mainstream society, and related philosophies.
What is the Wild Human Initiative?
The Wild Human Initiative represents a growing movement to reclaim our natural humanity, with all the blessings and blemishes that come with it. This movement seeks to provide each other with opportunities to experience once again what it truly means to be human. We believe we can know what it means to be human by living in a context of community, whether online or by living together in place and space.
This movement seeks to create viable Wild Human communities from Coast to Coast and continent to continent. This is a movement focused on empowerment and transformation, by working with what is real and by living in ways we find magical. Thus, we took our own Wild Human Initiative in September 2004, and launched this grassroots project to represent that movement, to promote, advocate, and spread Wild Humanism to every heart wanting to know about it and be part of it.
We strive to awaken, empower, and liberate our fellow Children of the Earth by answering the wants and needs of our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls, with food, music, arts, survival skills, adventures, capers, and compassionate love.
