The most iconic war weapons of the Native Indians were the bow and arrow and the tomahawk. The arrow-point was made of of chert, hornstone, or flint. Spears were pointed with similar material. They whittled bows from strong, tough wood and shaped them in a double curve. The Native Americans made arrows with a sharp stone head. The arrows could measure up to two and a half feet long and were feathered, usually from the feathers of eagles or buzzards,  which insured accuracy in its flight. The war-club, of heavy wood, is usually elaborately ornamented with war-eagle feathers and with painted devices.
