Process and use almost every part of the large animal you kill. Waste nothing. The buffalo is used as an example in these 3 DVDs but the techniques you will learn can be used for big game in general.

In the 1st DVD with the help of Lakota-Sioux they harvest a Buffalo and show you the steps Native Americans have taken to harvest, process and use almost every part of the animal.

Learn how to skin the animal starting at the back, how to butcher it using both stone and steel tools, how to preserve the brain for brain-tanning at a later date, how to remove and prepare tendons for sinew, how to prepare the stomachs for use as a cooking vessel. Additionally learn how to make an expedient stone tool for skinning and butchering… and much, much more. 

In the 2nd DVD you will learn to make charcloth and the basics of hide tanning. A deer hide is taken from its raw state through hide scraping, de-hairing, braining, grain breaking and finally to its finished smoked and pliable destiny. Tendons are discussed and how to prepare them for use and how to make a primitive pouch using leather “extras”.

The 3rd DVD concerns cooking. Learn all the steps to make a Native American meat preservation rack and how to smoke meat using it. Learn how to use the Buffalo‘s stomach as a cooking vessel the ancient way.

Learn how to cook Buffalo Stew using hot rocks, how to cook fish using bark and clay, how to utilize the intestines for traditional Buffalo Sausage. 

Universal DVDs. 4 hours and 20 minutes total running time.
