    Nice one for the kiddo! Keep hitting the gravel bars in that creek and you'll get your first one.

    My profile picture has a bunch of classic Nodena points from the Nodena site and a few other sites in Arkansas and Missouri. They are one of types that were likely cached as quivers of arrows. (Perino excavated them hafted on shafts, but didn't carry a camera. The shafts were basically stains in the dirt.)

    There are similar points found at Mississippian typically the Ft Ancient & Caborn-Welborn sites in Indiana. Willow Leaf is a more common name for them in Indiana, but like Nodena they come in a utilitarian version and a cache quality version.

    Any chance you are near the Wabash River? (They are found more in the Wabash drainage than the White River drainage.)

    Hi taylorr and welcome to our forum from Alabama. Regarding the type. I never found a Nodena and my old hunting grounds supposedly falls within their range of distribution. Although your point looks like it could be a Nodena base upon its outline, the resources I have all say that Nodenas are ellipitical in cross section whereas your point is flattened in cross section. Maybe some Nodenas turned out flattened, who knows. But what I see does not able me to call it a Nodena. Nevertheless it is a dandy point. Maybe this will whet your appetite to start looking for them and join the ranks of many on our forum who have a passion for this hobby.

    First ever find: Nodena Classic perhaps?

    Found Central Indiana, United States, in a creek bed. My kiddo found it. I am only guessing Nodena based on Google searches. I have never found an arrowhead before. Anyone have more accurate identification or information?
