The arrows are also of willow, fletched with 3 parallel split duck feathers lashed to the shaft with caribou sinew, which is glued with melted spruce gum. Small-game bow with blunt-headed bird arrow. Additional arrows are grasped along the bow to permit rapid shooting. [Harry Bearlake demonstrates holding a bow and arrow. Several buildings are in the background. Rae.]
