Indian Archery Target I (Book Two, Card 32)

The bow and arrow were not always available to American Indians. The bow and arrow were not adopted in Iowa until around A.D. 500, some 11,500 years after the first people arrived. The bow and arrow has several advantages over the spear, including faster projectile velocity, greater precision, and greater mobility. Arrowheads also used significantly fewer raw materials than spear heads.
