  • Arrow heads from Peru

    Here are some palm wood points that I brought back from Peru. The natives still make and use them. I can't remember the name of the people group who made them, but most of the native groups make similar pieces.

      Yeah, I don't think it would be very easy to pull it back out.

        So these fit into the main shaft to make a composite arrow,?...beautiful, Florida’s East coast natives used cane arrows...on occasion.

          Yes, they did. It's a very common design with subtle differences between tribes.

                        Two of my best friends were Ashanika brothers. I have a few photos that I should scan. Most of our pictures were ruined by the jungle mold. I think my mom gave me these two arrowheads I doubt she remembers which tribe they came from.
