A large stone tomahawk found on the edge of a buffalo wallow in Chase County, Kansas. This was found near Osage Hill in Chase Co. But the Pawnee ruled this area for a long time. This piece is large, being 5 1/4" X 3" X 1, They are known as skull-crackers.The bison would congregate at the tops of hills and dust themselves, creating large wallows that they used for thousands of years. So long, in fact, that they don't hold much vegetation to this day.
The Flint Hills of Kansas are known to be the finest grasslands in the world. Millions of buffalo can't be wrong. The Indians would sneak up the hill and ambush the bison who were busy at the top.
They would shoot arrows and drop the giants, and then finish them off with skull-crackers. Often, their arrow shafts would break, and handles of the tomahawks, and consequently were left behind. This is a very nice, early, tomahawk.This item is in the category "Antiques\Ethnographic\Native American". The seller is "tenbears67501" and is located in this country: US.
