Longbow Ishi, 68

With this Longbow "Ishi"we pay tribute to the man who has set the headstone for the comeback of archery. Ishi was born in 1860 and died in San Francisco in March the 25th of 1916, as the last Yahi, a branch of the Yana-people in North California. After he was found together with his mother, Dr. Saxton Pope has accommodated him and cared for him. Ishis´ mother, however, died comparatively early. After his recovery, Ishi taught Saxton Pope and his friend Art Young how to construct bows, how to shoot with them and beside that how to hunt with them. Due to Dr. Saxton Pope´s memorandum of his experiences this story is still published today. More information...
