Kulata (Hunting spear)
The kulata is a long hunting spear used for catching large game like kangaroo and emu. The shaft of the spear is made entirely of mulga. The barb is attached with a combination of a natural resin and emu sinew. Finally a notch is scored in the end of the spear in which to hook the miru or spear thrower, used to launch the spear with increased strength, speed and accuracy. Errol Evans has decorated this unusual spear with feathers and wool. It is a traditional spear for ceremonial purpose that is not used for hunting.
