Making The Lakota Bow

The circular designed logo of Primitive Lifeways

Here is a video I am very proud of. For the past year I have been quietly working on filming the process of making a Lakota style bow. These powerful bows were used to hunt buffalo and defend against the US Calvary. In this video I show a step by step tutorial on how I craft the bow. A huge thanks to a Lakota friend, Richard Giago for the inspiration and Mark V Swanson for helping me become a better bow maker. Enjoy a years worth of work!
