The Atlatl:
Beyond the Bow

Did you know that before the bow and arrow many Native Americans used atlatls to hunt? Such dart throwers enabled hunters to throw the dart faster and farther than by hand alone. Under the guidance of atlatl expert Gary Nolf, you will learn about its history and the different designs of this ancient weapon before making your own atlatl and dart. Then, you’ll test your skill and craftsmanship in a just-for-fun competition.
