Dina Rigas

Field Staff

Born and raised in Ithaca, New York, Primitive Pursuits has been a part of Dina's life since she was a five-year-old fire tender. She is excited to pass on her skills, stories and love of nature to future generations of primitive pursuiters, especially starting friction fires, exploring, and hiding in the woods wearing charcoal face paint. If Dina is not at a Primitive Pursuits morning circle singing a song, she is playing tennis or off seeking new adventure. Dina is also a tennis coach at Cornell University and enjoys playing the ukulele, guitar and piano, exercising, and traveling.
