Atlatls at the Missoula Made Fair
The Made Fair was this weekend at the Adams Center, where you will find some of the coolest homemade items and things that you can get for gifts or goodies for yourself.
Gary Steele, from St.Ignatius has some really cool items. He has an organization where he teaches young children about some primitives way of life. One of his great items is the atlatl. An Atlatl according to World Atlatl Association "Atlatls are ancient weapons that preceded the bow and arrow in most parts of the world and are one of humankind’s first mechanical inventions".
They were used as a way to hunt many years ago and still to this day are. The primitive way to hunt and just being able to use these tools is such a skill and truly one with nature and the circle of life.
