Atshapi - bow used to kill rabbits and partridge. Before Innu had guns, we used this to kill caribou as well. When we were children, we saw bow and arrows being used to kill partridge and rabbits only. The wood was made out of tamarack. The string could be made out of braided caribou hide...akashku. The ones with round heads were used for killing partridge or rabbits.
