I watched the first episode of “Survive The Tribe” on the National Geographic Channel last night. Survival instructor and wilderness guide Hazen Audel travels to some of the world’s most remote tribal villages and joins them in their tribal life and practices.
It was great but gruesome, the African tribe in Kenya that he embedded in drinks a lot of cow blood and milk. Hazen was an art/jewelry teacher at my kids high school and is an amazing artist with impressive metal work in town ( check out the metal work in the Steelhead Bar & Grille).
It reminded me how truly disconnected we are from the food chain process. Sometimes I think our tendencies towards greater and greater pacification is the result of us not having to catch, kill and butcher our foods. We live an illusionary life.
I had to pay for the episode on Apple TV but it was worth it. I’m looking forward to the other episodes. I just hope there’s no more drinking blood out of the neck cavity of a freshly butchered goat!
Ps. I just ran into Hazen at my morning coffee shop after writing this post! Lol too crazy, Happy Birthday to me!I introduced myself and we talked about the show. He said the US audience hasn’t grabbed into it and they need to if a second season is going to happen. So go watch the show, Hazen said too :)
