These arrow points were collected from the Saxman site, a large Great Bend aspect village in Rice County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2016. Archeologists identify this projectile point style as Fresno arrow points: unnotched with a triangular shape. Though small and thin, they would have been extremely effective on the hunt. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Date: 1500-1650 CE
