This organization shall be known as “Fort Buenaventura Mountain Men” and shall be governed and administered according to these bylaws. Fort Buenaventura Mountain Men are a gathering of free, independent individuals in which education, integrity and freedom are of the utmost importance. We endeavor to learn, through study and experimentation, the history and skills of the individuals that occupied North America prior to 1840, emulate their way of life through the many different personas that existed in these time periods and share that knowledge with all interested parties. All members are expected to join together in working with, assisting, mentoring, sharing and promoting the success of other members. Our main goal is the preservation of knowledge and skills for the education and enjoyment of others, so as not to be lost or replaced and forgotten by newer technologies. Our secondary goal is for the preservation and beautification of the historical Fort Buenaventura located in Weber County. We hope in some small way to honor the many people that occupied these lands before us and remember their customs, hard work and sacrifice that has been the foundation of our nation and way of life.
