Nice find. Did you ever use it?

Was down to a Minn convention a couple years back and camped besides someone ( trapper) from a SW Minn Indian reservation and they said very few were left to be able to dig for the rock to make those pipes from as for the rules the Band had. I have dug one in an archeological site in Manitoba so it was interesting to learn the process

Arrowheads I have. The stone on the left I think is just natural occurring, although I did find it while fishing on the upper reaches of the historic Mohawk River in NY.

Those are plant fossils from the ancient sea floor; stem of some kind, no markings to identify. You can see the vascular system. I could literally pick up 50 of those in 10 minutes. Definitely not pecked

In no way do I mean this to demean Native Americans, but have you ever wondered; If Europeans had never landed in the western hemisphere would the Indians still be in the stone-age? I think they would be. Just think, the eastern hemisphere in the computer age and here in north America it would still be as is was before Columbus discovered this place.

It amazes me that the rest of the world discovered bronze and iron thousands of years ago, yet the native Americans were still in the stone-age. I wonder why?

Here are a few of mine. These are Yupik Eskimo.

As you can see they used glass and porcelain when they had it available.
