Tools were a necessity to Native Americans

The Native Americans had limited supplies to build their tools out of. Most of the materials they used were organic parts from an animal they had killed. They used different sorts of bone, wood, antlers, and other natural resources to construct these artifacts. The Native's would have had a hard time surviving without the tools they once learned how to build. The objects that I choose in my exhibit, had strong meanings to them, and some of them being used as often as everyday. These tools were put together very carefully to hold strength, and were often decorated with other materials.
