Mission Statement:
Primitive Lifeways is committed to the preservation of Native culture, languages, and the archaeological data recovered to keep the past alive. We recognize Native Americans as successful individuals who have endured and triumphed before, during, and after hard times. Furthermore, we see Native American people as artists, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and good stewards of wild lands. Finally, we also believe in preserving natural resources for future generations to come.
