Description & Services
Information The Millbrook 3D Shooters Association helps to promote their traditions and culture to the community members and anyone else that wishes to participate.The People of Mi’kma’ki have a deep heritage with archery; archery for hunting and competitive events for centuries. The Mi’kmaw used to make bows from one unsplit piece of maple. They would use a stone axe, a knife, and oyster shells to craft the shape of the bow. The arrows were made of cedar as cedar was light and could be split straight easily. The arrowhead was made from a bone, fletches made from eagle feathers were highly regarded for straighter shots.
