Every Winter Solstice, we have a tradition of throwing a flaming atlatl dart to start our campfire at our Winter Solstice Party. It’s a great way to ring in the Christmas season and the new year on the shortest day of the year.
Here’s a video this year’s flaming dart throw(s). Bob Berg of Thunderbird Atlatl does the honors:
From all of us at Thunderbird Atlatl, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Get a taste of our upcoming Instructional DVD that we will be releasing in the coming year! This video promo about Thunderbird Atlatl was created by Mark and Phoebe Morris of Owego House Productions. The music is “Forest Spirits” from the album, Mother Earth Memories by Tezinumpa and is used with permission from the artist. Check back at our website for news on the upcoming DVD.
Prelude to Traditional Fletching is a new video just completed by Thunderbird Atlatl. The video shows how to make traditional thread using hemp fiber. This is a great video for those wanting to learn the techniques for traditional fletching.
We’re planning to release new videos on this site so be sure to keep checking back.
We’re working on trying to post videos on a number of atlatl subjects. We will be posting them in the next few weeks and months as we complete them. This first video shows how to make a scarf joint to connect two sections of an atlatl dart. Here’s the link:
