WESTERN PLAINS STATES
GENERALLY, FROM TEXAS NORTH TO THE DAKOTAS
RETURN TO PAGE 1
These twelve plains Indian war clubs all represent one
of three basic types of plains stone-headed war clubs.
The stone heads have, in varying degrees, a double
pointed shape that was produced by pecking and grinding
a creek or river pebble into the desired shape. They were
then hafted by a rawhide strap wrapped around the center
of both grooved and ungrooved stones. The handles
were also covered in leather. Most of these clubs have long
handles that were probably used to fight on horseback.
