Atlatl: An Atlatl is a tool that was used to throw darts or spears at velocities up to and even exceeded 100 miles per hour. Atlatls were used by the first immigrants to the Americas (1000 B.C.) but most notably the atlatls were used by the Aztecs when the Spanish arrived in the Americas (1500 A.D.).
