Organic. Significant. Powerful.
I am really fond of South American longbows and long arrows, for several reasons - one being that's where I learned to make, shoot, and hunt with bow and arrow.
They are typically strong bows shooting durable reed arrows. Long arrows aren't so easy to lose in the thick Amazonian rainforest. All natural materials, therefore they can be easily repaired and replaced if need be. The sleek design is simple but takes a deft hand and keen eye to properly craft.
Today shotguns are beginning to replace bows. On the one hand archery is the skill of a by-gone, low-tech era. On the other, the bow and arrow is still a practical tool and serves as a symbol of native culture, masculinity, forest knowledge, and confidence in the face of brutality.
Colonization is still going strong. Whites are encroaching on native land, and if it's not rape, murder, and displacement, then it's undermining, swindling, and marginalization. Poaching, logging, mining, and dams serve to destroy the land and ecosystem that the native people thrive within.
My thoughts go out to those resilient indigenous peoples.
