Native American spears were an extremely important part of the daily lives of Native American tribes for centuries. They were used for hunting and later for warfare as well. Native American Indian spears are hand crafted and often could reveal a status among individuals within a tribe. Usually made of wood, the shafts of most Native American Indian spears were made of wood, and the tips made of various materials like bone spear tips, flint spear tips, obsidian spear heads, wood spear heads and eventually metal spear heads after the introduction from the Europeans. Contrary to what the common person believes spears were primarily used for hunting and it was not until the past few hundred years that they were known to be used during warfare. Depending on the task at hand, Native American Indian spears had several types of clovis, arrowheads, and spear tips. Native American Indian spears of today are primarily used for ceremonial purposes or home décor.
