National Geographic survival host living ‘rich cultural stew” of adventure

OUTDOOR LIVING — Former Ferris High school science teacher, survival instructor, naturalist and artist Hazen Audel is spotlighting the skills of indigenous people in remote niches of the world for the National Geographic Channel TV series, Survive the Tribe.

My Sunday Outdoors story describes how Audel’s childhood fascination with snakes and spiders put the Spokane native on the path to hunting with bald eagles in Mongolia, dodging stampeding elephants in Kenya, hunting with blowguns in the jungle of Ecuador and learning to spear seals from a kayak in the icy waters of Nunavik.

This photo gallery offers a glimpse of the job Audel calls “a rich cultural stew of outdoor adventure.”
