Their primitive bows, arrows and spears were part of their everyday culture. The fish baskets were used to trap fish in streams. The three pointed arrow was used to shoot fish.
First one is a bow. The bow was made from black palm and the "string" was a thin strip of bamboo.
Second one shows a bunch of arrows. The small one on the right with a rounded tip was used for shooting birds.
Third one shows a fishing arrow on the left and a hunting arrow on the right.
Fourth one is a spear used in fighting and ceremonial activities.
Fifth one is a set of arrows.
Sixth one is a fish basket that they set in stream to catch fish. One end is larger than the other.
