    Ishi is THE man. I read about him many years ago in a Archery mag. He is an incredible source of first hand knowledge of the native ways. He taught Pope & Young all of his skills.

    I made my own Ishi stick to flake the glass points I made.

    Looks like he is getting ready to make himself a fire in that pic.

    Re: Anyone recognize these?

    I recognized them immediately as Ishi Points. There was movie made years ago about Ishi called The Last Of His Tribe and starring Graham Greene as Ishi. If you ever get the chance to watch this movie then do so, it is a very good movie.

    Re: Anyone recognize these?

    The anthropologists that "discovered" Ishi wrote a pretty cool book about him. It's actually a great story. He came and lived at the museum and taught them all kinds of cool stuff. They even went hunting with him and harvested a deer with his bow and stone tipped arrows.
    Can't recall the title off hand but saw it recently in a book store so it's still in print.

    Re: Anyone recognize these?

    I found a very Left biased account of Ishi that labeled him a prisoner and a victim of the "proud-to-be-American" genocide of his people.
