This ivory point was made by one of the Eskimo cultures. It may have been used on the end of a spear as either a foreshaft or as a projectile point. If it was a foreshaft, an additional harpoon style point would have been fitted onto the pointed end. The roughened tapered end was attached (hafted) to the end of a spear shaft. This point measures 8 3/4 inches (22.2 cm) long.
