At the moment, I'm leaning toward "wildcrafting, hunting and ancestral skills"

I'm thinking it could be a good home for heidi bohan, her new book and all of the wilderness folks like Wilderness Awareness School and TrackersNW.

how bout    hunter-gatherer 

A hunter-gatherer society is one whose primary subsistence method involves the direct procurement of edible plants and animals from the wild, foraging and hunting without significant recourse to the domestication of either. Hunter-gatherers obtain most from gathering rather than hunting; up to 80% of the food is obtained by gathering.[2] The demarcation between hunter-gatherers and other societies which rely more upon domestication (see agriculture and pastoralism and neolithic revolution) is not a clear-cut one, as many contemporary societies use a combination of both strategies to obtain the foodstuffs required to sustain themselves.

I like "hunting & gathering."

A term I heard elsewhere is "re-wilding."

Based on the suggestions here and via email, I changed the name to "wild harvesting and ancestral skills"

Thanks everybody for helping me to figure out a good path!

I prefer wildcrafting.  You may have additional folks interested in hunting with an atl-atl, but many (most?) foragers are plant gatherers with little desire to throw spears.  Just my opinion.  I don't hunt any more but if I were to restart (unlikely), I'd hunt with a gun so as to make it quick.
 
Without subsidies, chem-ag food costs four times more than organic. Or this tiny ad:
