Shown are a few of the arrow points collected from the Paint Creek village in McPherson County, Kansas. They were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1971. Washita arrow points have hafting notches that are generally high on the blade. Archeologists identify Harrell points by their single side and base notches. The Paint Creek site is what archeologists call part of the Little River Focus of the Great Bend Aspect (ancestral Wichita), whose people practiced fishing, hunting, gathering, and agriculture.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
