600 year OLD ORIGINAL ANCIENT INDIAN STONE AXE WEAPON AZ-CA

SONY DSC600 year original ancient very old Indian stone axe weapon from CA or AZ region.   This is a 5″ x 2 1/2″ all Indian made . This came from estate of professor of archeology and history.   Although stone axes had been used as tools and ritual objects by Native Americans for millennia, the axe did not become popular as a weapon until after Europeans had introduced iron and steel to native tribes. The word “tomahawk”– which is now synonymous with Indian-style fighting hatchets– originally referred to a war club in the Powhatan language. Once steel became available, however, axes with metal heads eclipsed the more old-fashioned war clubs as the Native American melee weapon of choice, and the word “tomahawk” began to be widely used to refer to this style of weapon.
