I have heard of several methods by the American Indians In (he manufaclnre of arrowheads. K Ihcre Is an Indian expert or even an expert Indian around could you please find out how they did It? A. Most slone artifacts were flaked by Iwo techniques: percussion and pressure. The percussion technique was used for larger pieces such as axe blades, scrapers, and choppers. The flint, chert, or similar roalcrial was slruck obliquely by another piece of hard stone. By carefully changing the angle and point of impact, subsequent chipping would produce a sharp implement. The pressure technique involved the use of an antler or bone tool pressed firmly against the flint to remove small chips. Repeated, this produced smaller objects, such as the thin bladed arrow points. Sometimes heat was used lo break off large chunks from boulders.
