This arrow point was recovered from an archeological site in Rice County during the 1981 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. Archeologists often refer to side notched arrow points as Washita points. The notches aided in hafting the arrow point to the arrow shaft. The site was a small Great Bend aspect, Little River focus grass-covered pit house that included an entryway, storage pits, post molds and a hearth. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Date: 1450-1700 CE
