The Great Seal of the Choctaw Nation features a bow with three arrows along with a smoking tomahawk-pipe. The arrows represent three great chiefs: Apuckshunnubbee, Pushmataha, and Mosholatubbee. The peace pipe represents the peaceful nature of the tribe while the bow represents their willingness to fight when attacked or threatened.
