Making A Stick-Bow Part 4: Twisting Bowstring /w The Urban-Aboriginal
Published 5 months ago
The next important part of any bow is the string. Natural fibers can be used to achieve this. Here I am using harvested dogbane (Apocynum canabinum). Next to animal tendon or sinew dobane in the Northern hemesphire is one of the most strongest natural fibers you an find. I was used by Native peoples to make nets, clothing, traps, and bowstring. Here I am showing the start of reverse-twisting using dogbane fibers.
