Cover by Joshua Sage, NM. The atlatl contest held annually at Winter Count Primitive Skills Gathering in Maricopa, AZ. Atlatl contests have become available around the world through the efforts of the World Atlatl Association. One of the earliest – The World Atlatl Contest – evolved from one of the earliest primitive skills gatherings – The Fireside Folk Festival in Saratoga, Wyoming, ca. 1965. Primitive skills are exciting to a wide range of people and speak to the heart of our human connections.
