James Bama - Pre-Columbian Indian with Atlatl
In Wyoming, a group of young Indians have set up a working model of a pre-Columbian village in order to teach the primitive crafts of survival. This painting of a young man holding an atlatl (pronounced at'latl) is one example. The atlatl is a device dating back to man's Paleolithic Age. It was used by the hunter to enable him to attain greater speed when throwing his spear – a matter that could result in the difference between life and death for him and his tribe. To use it, the hunter fit the notched end of his spear into the hook of the atlatl and swung both back and then forward over his heard, releasing only the spear to make contact with the prey that would provide food, clothing, shelter, tools and utensils. - JB
