The native fletcher put a lot of work in making one. I would think most every one in the village had some skill in doing these.

Most folks could do at least basics if needed. However that said Indians took much pride in their work. Most ‘basics’ were turned out by a master smith. While they didn’t have money in a westren sense they did have a thriving economy. And jobs could be very specialized.
All women could sew, but pottery making was a skill learned and traded inside the tribe.
Men tended to make points, bows and knifes or other weapons. Women may excel at art items.
Trade inside a village or band and even between bands was common
