Matt’s Biography

Matt Graham has been teaching primitive-living skills for about 20 years. After moving to the Sierra mountain range at age 17, he began to climb, mountain run and learn Native American living skills from the Miwok, Paiute and others. At that time, Matt would take long runs into the backcountry with a few items tied around his waist, forage for food and build shelters. Afterwards, Matt moved to the Grand Canyon during a Walkabout, ran the Pacific Crest Trail through California, then peddled his bicycle to Utah. There he became immersed in the Hunter Gatherer lifestyle that people had once lived: connected with the earth & living with the land. After sharing his knowledge with a TV world, he is back in his home country of Utah offering hands on instruction with valuable skills that can deepen your connection to your roots and this planet.
