The arrows used by the Chugach for hunting otters and the light harpoons used by the Kodiak Alutiit are very similar. They consist of a shaft with a feathered end, an ivory top on the shaft and a detachable point. The arrows of the Chugach and the light harpoons of the Kodiak Alutiit are different from one another only in their dimensions and the shape of the lower portion of the shaft: the arrows have cut out for the bow string but the harpoons do not because the harpoons are launched with the aid of a throwing board.
