- One (1) Handmade Chippewa, aka Ojibway, Ojibwa. The tribal name they used for each other or for the Indians was Annishinabe, which means “puckered” most likely because of their mocassins
- The white man called them Chippewa. Say Chippewa/Ojibwa aloud and you can see how close they sound
- The stripes on the arrow represent who made the arrow. Each maker has his own stripe design.
- An excellent page to learn more about the life and times of the Chippewa Indians go to https://www.native-languages.org/chippewa.htm

- Arrow is 27-28 inches long made of balsa or cedar, stained for a rustic look, 3/8 inch in diameter
the fletchings are about 5 inches long, 3 real wild turkey feathers which have been clipped
- The tip is 1 inch stone tip of various colors
- the 2 stripes on the arrow are the signature of the maker of the arrow. This helps identify a lost arrow in the woods, a winner of a game, etc. Maybe you can put your signature on this arrow.
- the Fletching and stone tip are wrapped with sinew to the shaft. Arrows without sinew wrapped fletching and tip hardly come close to the beauty and authenticity our arrows exemplify
