Paleo tools


The Paleo-Indians were split up into three different tribes. Those tribes where the Clovis, Folsom, and Plainview also known as the Plano. The different tribes had their own unique tools. They were also around the Americas in different times. The Clovis lived around 11,500 B.C.E to around 10,900 B.C.E. The Folsom where around 10,900 B.C.E to about 10,200 B.C.E. The Plano Indians lived about 10,200 to 8,000 B.C.E.

The Paleo-Indians used many arrow heads such as the Clovis and Folsom points. These point where made by chipping stones to form a point. The points where attached to a spear and thrown. These where used to hunt and take down mastodons and mammoths. Hunt these enormous animals was really risky but the profit that came from them where well worth the risk. They used as much of their kill as possible. They would eat the meat and organs and would use ivory or bone for tools.

Peleo-Indians intro.

Paleo-Indians lived in America for about 10,000 to 40,000 years. The word Paleo literally mean ancient. The Paleo-Indians where nomadic hunter-gatherers. It is thought that they came down from a land bridge that connected the Americas with Asia. They hunted by using spears with flint as the tip and hunted and groups. Using these techniques they where able to take down large pray like mammoths. The Paleo-Indians where able to adapt to food shortage and weather changes. These people eventually became different Native American tribes.
