These four dart points were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) American Indian camp site in Doniphan County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The dart point's stems are all what archeologists call contracting stems. One dart point has a pink cast, which is the result of the flintknapper heat treating the chert to improve its knapping quality. After knapping the dart points were mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl.
