History Edit

"Before the Sioux adoption of horses, they waged war and hunted on foot, armed with bows powerful enough to penetrate a buffalo’s tough hide. They used both simple and compound bows, made of wood and elk sinew. Their arrowheads were sometimes stone, but often iron. The Sioux bartered extensively with American and Canadian traders for iron points. Some surviving Sioux arrows are actually tipped with iron nails – the Sioux were a practical folk. If it worked, they used it."
