Hunting for Indian arrowheads was a unique and interesting pastime I enjoyed doing with my siblings or schoolmates. We searched the prairie around Arickaree School for them. Daily blowing winds, often howling with black dirt, scoured the ground and exposed them. We found several bits and pieces and on occasion, a whole one. We glued the intact ones to a piece of cardboard and took them to school for “show and tell.” Most of the fascination for me was trying to imagine how the Indians could create such sharp points on them and how they could kill animals with them.
I had to share this treasure with my classmates and siblings, but prided myself in helping to find them.
