Atlatl Demonstrations at Poverty Point - MAY

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 to Friday, May 31, 2019

Thousands of years ago, the Native Americans who built Poverty Point needed to be able to hunt for their food. The atlatl was the best tool for the job. Join us for an exciting demo where a ranger will discuss the significance of the atlatl and the techniques for using one.

Participants will also have the opportunity to test out their abilities with the atlatl!

This program is available by request Wednesdays through Sundays for the month of May. For more information call 888.926.5492 toll free or 318.926.5492 locally.
