Native American artifacts....

Greg (E.Tn) asked to see some NA relics. Each display contains points from two different areas and you can see a difference in
craftsmanship. I didn't make the boxes but an older lady my wife knew wanted to make one for me. She painted the picture on
the rock. I wasn't expecting that and it totally blew me away! I threw in the last pic, I used to make replica stuff but not much anymore.
I built the box and made the piece and used an old primitive knife. At the moment I can't get to my other artifacts until my wife's
always-down-on-her-luck friend moves all of her crap. Hopefully she'll move out soon. I'll try to post those later. HH okie

Okierebel, those are some Excellent Native American Artifacts. All are beautifully displayed. The Native Americans were quite the craftsmen. I know that you are proud of your collection and rightfully so. The painting on the rock is and was well done, and adds a special touch to your collection. (y)

Thanks, Confetrit!! You know, I tried to do some of that flint knapping. Not even close!! I've seen
people do it that were good though. Yes they were craftsmen and very resourceful also.

I remember as a kid my parents and their friends couple would go down on the Clearwater River and “shake” for arrowheads. Dad would build an A frame looking stand and then put an old roller from an old style washing machine on top. Make a screen box, roll and shake the box along the roller and only the arrowheads and rocks would stay inside. After he passed away the step sisters gave them to me and I had a display box made. On the wall downstair in the ManCave.

Neat finds, there Okie. Looks like the cover a period all the way from at least Archaic to Woodland.
