People in Africa invented hunting bows and arrows, probably about 64,000 years ago. Some of the earliest arrowheads come from South Africa. Then as people spread from Africa to India, Australia, all over Asia, and Europe, they took their bows and arrows with them. Bows and arrows finally made their way to North America around 3,000 B.C. Native Americans started using bows to hunt in North America. It is believed that they got their bow technology from the Tuniit, and it spread from there across the Americas.
