AtlAtl in the back yard

This last summer, I hosted a Primitive Skills Meetup in my backyard where we made AtlAtls, or spear throwers. It was a blast! I just found a video of it today, so that’s why this post is 6 months later.

An AtlAtl is basically a stick that is used to throw a spear or dart. Now, my back yard isn’t really big enough for such activities, and we did bounce a few off my garage siding and through the open door. All in all, it was a blast!

Alan, I STILL have your water bottle – next time I see you, I shall return it to you..
