Old Crow - Caribou: Tools

[Digital Collections Website]

We, the Gwich'in from Old Crow, make tools from the caribou antlers and bones. These tools are used to hunt caribou. Some examples of these tools are: spears, bows and arrow heads, knives, and axes. We also make an oolou to scrape and tan the caribou skin.
