The arrow is very important to the Native Indians. The Bow and Arrow enables the Indians to hunt the animals which would provide their food, clothing, weapons and tools. The bow and arrow were used by skilled hunters who held a pair of arrows in the left hand, which also held the bow, and held another arrow in his mouth. A quiver with spare arrows hung from his shoulder. The Bow and arrow also allowed the Native Indian to defend his family in times of war. The meaning of the Arrow symbol altered according to the way they were depicted.
The meaning of the above single arrow indicated protection and defence. Arrows also signified direction, force, movement, power and direction of travel. When an arrow pointed to the left it meant warding off evil, pointing to the right meant protection and an arrow pointing down meant peace. Two arrows depicted together were the symbol for war.
A bundle of five arrows represented one of the five founding tribes of the Iroquois League. One arrow could easily be broken, while a bundle of five arrows would remain strong. Crossed arrows were symbols of friendship. A broken arrow was a symbol of peace.
