These bone artifacts were collected from the Paint Creek village site in McPherson County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Shown is a bead made from a small hollow bone, a pendant made from a rib section of a small animal, and an awl used as a perforating tool in soft materials, like hides, and possibly in basket and pottery manufacture. The Paint Creek site is included in what archeologists call the Little River Focus of the Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita), whose people practiced fishing, hunting, gathering, and agriculture.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
