OsiYo (hello)
I am a member of the Echota Cherokee tribe of Alabama and in the past 6 months i have been making
a real effort to get intouch with my heritage. So i thought it would be cool to have a bow and arrow setup like
the Cherokee of old.This is why i had all the questions about the 2 fletch arrow and its history with my tribe.
I made this arrow out of river cane i collected while out hunting last fall. It flies really good and is fast.
I am amazed over and over again whith what can be accomplished with all natural materials!
Here is a picture ,what do you think?
Thanks to all who posted pics for reference and gave descriptions this was a lot of help to me.
Matt
