Arrow Points for Hunting, Fishing, and War
Tools of everyday life
What tools do you use to obtain your daily meals and keep yourself safe? For American Indians, arrowheads were part of their everyday lives. They attached the points to arrows and spears for hunting, fishing, and war. Each region of Texas had distinctive arrowhead types. The long, slender Toyah points were used in the Trans Pecos and Big Bend areas between 900-1400 BCE. The Perdiz points were common throughout Texas and Louisiana between 1200-1500 BCE.
