If you are getting into archery the first thing you should do is setup an account with Lancaster Archery Supply (LAS). Ohlone Archery carries a small inventory of essential traditional gear and tackle – basic stuff like arm guards, finger tabs & gloves, quivers, arrow totes, and bow cases – everything in black. If you want more variety or different colors you can order everything you want from LAS!

Ohlone Archery is named as a tribute to the indigenous people of the Central California Coast who roamed this area with the bow and arrow for thousands of years before us. Ohlone Archery does not claim to represent the Ohlone People or their culture. The website home page photo of Club President Nico Gallegos was taken at Lincoln Park in Alameda next to a monument dedicated to one of the largest Ohlone burial mounds in the East Bay, the place where he learned of the Ohlone as a child.
