American Indian Tools Found in Arkansas
The state of Arkansas is home to a number of Native American tribes, many of which have acted as namesakes for cities, towns, and places. While native tribes still have a large presence in the state, their ancestors were the original inhabitants, and for centuries had the land to themselves. These ancient peoples left behind tools that have been recovered at sites across the state. Tools are some of many important artifacts anthropologists use to recreate old native cultures and ways of life.
