June 3, 2014 — The World Atlatl Day Competition will be held Saturday, June 6 at Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, 4619 E. Washington Street, Phoenix, from 9 a.m. to noon. Local primitive skills group S.A.L.T. (Study of Ancient Lifeways and Technologies) will put on an Atlatl demonstration and accuracy contest.

Museum admission is free for this event.

The atlatl is a weapon predating the bow and arrow that has been used worldwide for thousands of years and proved to be an effective weapon for early humans. An atlatl is a stick with a hook on the end to hold the dart/spear. It was mainly used over rocks and hand-thrown spears because it increased the distance, speed and force of the dart/spear. Visitors will be able to attempt to throw darts using the atlatl and even join in the accuracy competition.
