Warfare — Nomlaki

Every man is trained to fight, but an unsuccessful fighter is never forced to battle. Every battle goes by the rules. No fighting without provocation. Each warrior gets only ten arrows. No using an enemy’s arrows. No throwing rocks at a hidden enemy. No fighting after sundown. Members of the Huta society know how to dodge arrows. How they do this is a secret. We know we have no choice if our enemy picks a fight, but the virtuous always win.
