My name is Sheina. I’m just a young doe, at the tender age of 22. I’m a student in the city of Montreal, where I grew up, and where my family lives. However, unlike most city folk, I’ve had a little bit of a different upbringing. At the age of 18, I took off to Tom Brown Jr.’s tracker school, where I got a taste for wilderness survival, and earth living. After college, at 19, I headed to the Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA, where I spent my first year in their residential program, and my second year as a teachers apprentice in their youth programs, mentoring pre schoolers and teens a few days a week. I also developed a solid foundation for naturalist skills, as a tracker and a botany geek. But my real passions lay in hard skills; basket weaving, bow building, hunting and fishing, primitive fire, etc.
I am now looking to implement these skills in an urban context. Join me as I give you the details on my projects, from food fermenting to dumpster diving, and everything in between, including mentoring the teens I work with, and personal challenges I face while I walk in the urban world, and the natural world, at the same time.
