Tomahawk Throwing

Tomahawks originated in North America amongst the Iroquoian and Algonquian Indians, who used them as tools, weapons, and ceremonial pieces – the word comes from a transliteration of the Algonquin word for “to strike down”

the first Tomahawks were made with wooden shafts and heads of bone, rock, or wood – Europeans introduced the metal blade and traded the Tomahawks with the Indians, who became very adept at using them in battle and came to greatly prize them

our Tomahawk throwing takes place in our archery range
