These arrows were donated by the descendants of Mahlon Stubbs and his son Addison Stubbs. Both men worked with the Kansa tribe during the 1860s and 1870s as Indian Agent, Kansa Quaker School Superintendent, interpreter, or Appraisal Commission chair at the Kansa reservation in Morris County. The circumstances of their acquiring these arrows is unknown. Based on the sinew wrapping of the arrows, the arrow on the top may be older than the two nearly identical arrows below.

Date: 1865-1880
