Adventures in Nature: Atlatl
The atlatl is an ancient hunting device used by people of the area before the bow and arrow. Considered a symbol of power, it was used for thousands of years. There are many atlatl petroglyphs carved into the Sioux Quartzite at the site. During this program learn how to use an atlatl while trying to “hunt” a life-size buffalo target. While at the site, view the rock carvings and learn more about the people who created them on guided tours.
Adventures in Nature is a hands-on series that provides opportunities to learn about American Indian culture, prairies and archaeology. A new theme will be explored each week.
