VIDEO: Processing Yucca Leaves for Quick and Easy Primitive Cordage

Before the invention of nails, screws, and other fasteners, the world was literally tied together with cordage. It should be at the top of the list for every survival kit, but what do you do when there isn’t any available cordage?

In this video, Tyler explains how to make strong cordage from the fibers of the yucca plant. This is incredibly useful knowledge for when you run out of cordage, or better yet when you use natural cordage to conserve your stash of man-made cordage.

These techniques can be applied to a huge array of natural fibers, and we encourage you to experiment with plants in your area. While this skill may seem simple, like many, it takes practice to master. Once you try out these techniques, or if you’ve used them before, let us know how it goes in the comments.

His passion for primitive survival drove him on a quest to track down the most knowledgeable instructors in the field, traveling from Utah to the Amazon to Canada and finally back to Utah. Like all competent survivalists, Tyler has experience in a broad range of subjects. Highlights from his background includes criminal justice, law enforcement, archery, small arms, amateur radio, farming, gardening, raising cattle, and poultry. He has attended classified schools, worked in law enforcement, studied too many martial arts to list, and achieved the rank of 2nd Dan in Shōrin-ryū karate.
