These five drills were just a few of those collected from the Paint Creek village in McPherson County. Drills were used to bore holes in softer materials than the drill material itself, such as hides, shells, or soft stone. These drills were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1971. The Paint Creek village 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
