Hey, I just found another authentic Native American arrowhead ! About two hours ago I was just setting out for a little stroll and I found this on the side of the road, right beside our tiny house. Last Autumn there was some road work which moved the earth a bit, and this was right next to a fir tree, which are known to unearth such things in their growth habit of pushing up the soil. It is not complete, only a little over an inch, with the tip and shaft broken off, as most “used” arrowheads are when found.
This is actually the second arrowhead I have found near our house, the first which I found and posted way back in 2011 which was a spectacular specimen, although sadly our collection was lost to the wildfire. I must say, very close to our house, Jeff and I have found three, one of which was a large 3″ spear head. There is no doubt to me that the lives of those indigenous people are superimposed in the present, just a blink away in time, as I often feel an ancient past around me, a sort of innate sensitivity to the wild I suppose.

Fantastic find! 👏👏👏
What fun! Your eye must be trained for them, I never would have spotted that!
Sarah, I’m very likely passing hundreds of them on my walks, no kidding, so I don’t really think I’m watching near as well as I could. This one stood out (as the one in 2011) because it was shiny black thing in grey dirt. Still, I am amazed at how many I’ve found just walking along .
Hope you are enjoying the tail end of summer ! xx
ps. I didn’t even have time to get a manicure before photographing… LOL!
Wow! I have never found anything as interesting! Tail end of summer… 😢 so fast! But I am enjoying it for sure!
