Photo Friday: Smoke and Fire

We visited Meadowcroft last weekend. This is one of my favorite places on earth, and I have a long history with them, from designing and helping to make the Meadowcroft Quilt that hangs in their visitor center to writing an article about them for Pennsylvania Magazine a few years back.

This time we were there for a weekend devoted to Native American history. Especially interesting was this guy who demonstrated fire starting.

First there was smoke.

And then there was more smoke.
And finally...

Isn't that amazing. I watched a Native American do that at a local Pow Wow one year. Meadowcroft sounds like an interesting place.

Mason, both my husband and I can start fires with flint and steel, but this guy was doing it the REALLY old way: basically rubbing two sticks together. I was impressed!
