As the white man intruded into their lands, the Indians found other sources for their points including metal and glass. One source of glass was various colored lenses which the railroads used in their signs and signal devices. This colorful glass was prized and stolen by Native Americans and used to create some beautiful points! This blade is typical of such usage.
