Original Works 

By JOHN MURDOCH.

45 Pages of Alaskan Bow Hunting and the Construction of Bows

Excerpt: While endeavoring to work out the method of construction of the bows collected by our party* among the Eskimos of Point Barrow, Arctic Alaska, I was led to make a comparative study of all the Eskimo bows in the National Museum with the view of determining the types of construction to be found among them, and their geographical distribution.

While endeavoring to work out the method of construction of the bows collected by our party* among the Eskimos of Point Barrow, Arctic Alaska, I was led to make a comparative study of all the Eskimo bows in the National Museum with the view of determining the types of construction to be found among them, and their geographical distribution.

I have confined myself to the discussion of the forms of bow in use among the Western Eskimos, namely, those inhabiting the shores of the Arctic Ocean from the Mackenzie River westward to Bering Strait, of Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska, with the outlying Asiatic branches on the mainland of Siberia and Saint Lawrence Island.

These regions are very fully represented in the Museum by the collections of Boss and MacFarlane from the Mackenzie River region, Dall, Turner, Nelson, and others, from the Alaska coast. Nelson, from Saint Lawrence Island, and the North Pacific Exploring Expedition, from the mainland of Siberia, while the material from the eastern tribes is very scanty and unsatisfactory.
