Jon Young lecture at Natural Way: Indigenous Voices
Jon Young is one of the foremost authorities on tracking and wilderness awareness in the United States.   Inspired by his mentoring with Tom Brown, Jr., author of "The Tracker" series, and fueled by his studies in natural history and anthropology, Jon has pioneered blending Native mentoring and cultural techniques from around the world with a broad array of tools for connecting with nature and developing refined and holistic tracking skills.

Along with the late Grandfather Ingwe, Jon began the Wilderness Awareness School, which has helped thousands of people reconnect with their native environments. Jon and Ingwe brought together common cultural elements from indigenous cultures around the world to create a map
for how people can effectively mentor "a connection between people and nature, and thereby
bringing abundance and regeneration" for the earth and her people." Jon's 8 Shields Cultural Mentoring model has now influenced well over 100 nature and eco-community programs in the United States, Canada and Europe, and is also used in his consulting for organizations, government agencies and communities worldwide.

Recently Jon made a journey to one of the last San Bushman communities living their original patterns. This ancient culture still lives and thrives directly from the land but is now in the sunset of its existence.  Despite this sad reality, Jon's message from the Bushmen is one of hope and inspiration.
