They were excellent warriors without bows so you certainly can play them very well without bows too

They had metalworking and other skills but not on the same level of technology and training than Ancient or Medieval armies. Native bows used by other people (African or American) were perhaps effective at very close range but nothing to compare with the Ancient/Medieval bows used for war. Ancient slings were effective with lead bullets and for shooting at large enemy groups.
