Bow and Arrows have been a vital tool to Native Americans for war and to get food. They may vary in size based on the tribe. For example, the Tsalagi (Cherokee) had 6 foot bows. When, the plains tribes has smaller bows to hunt on horseback. The arrows were made out of stone, but when Europeans started trading metal points were able to be forged. Today, fiber bows are made, and Two Eagles Legacy has made bows made from PVC pipes.
