My Lives with Tribes at Spokane’s Martin Woldson Theater Nov. 16, 2017
National Geographic TV host, survival expert, and Spokane native Hazen Audel has lived with indigenous people all over the planet and is bringing his unique stories and experiences back to Spokane. “My Lives with Tribes” is a rare opportunity to hear personal recollections of Audel’s travels that include living with some of the most exotic communities alongside the wildest animals in the world.
This interactive, multi-media presentation features Audel telling his stories illustrated with his own film footage and photography. The show is for any adventure, wildlife, and indigenous culture enthusiast who wants to enjoy the spell-binding stories of the natural world from a man who has experienced life with some of the most remote and fascinating cultures on Earth.
Most recognized as the TV host for “Primal Survivor” and “Survive the Tribe” on National Geographic, Audel has been uniquely fortunate in his travels, getting himself into peculiar situations in which he has lived as a member of communities rather than just a traveler. These experiences allow Audel to share the lives that traditional people lead while surviving off the land in remote and challenging places, from Central and South America, to Australia, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia and beyond.
The common thread in each of Audel’s unique living experiences has been his outgoing personality and ability to earn the respect of the people he comes in contact with, from indigenous, rural communities to sophisticated travelers and business associates. Audel continues to spend much of his adult life working with and living alongside indigenous people in wild, remote places, and these experiences shape much of how he lives his life and views the world. It is evident being around Audel that he cares deeply for the people, communities, and plants and animals that have taught him so much.
