Mississippi Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts and their Historical Facts


Mississippi Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts and their Historical Facts:

NANIH WAIYA CHOCTAW ARTIFACTS ARCHAEOLOGICAL RESEARCH STUDY. Study inc: 1951 Arkabutla Reservoir Desoto County MS (Found at low water). Dec 1951 Beaver Creek Amite County MS. Jan 1952 (South Side) Sardis Reservoir Lafayette County MS. 1939 Wolf Creek Prentiss County MS. Oct 1950 Mackeys Creek Prentiss County MS. Dec 1952 Nanih Waiya Creek Louisville Winston County MS.

Choctaw Arrow Head Collected Dec 1952 Nanih Waiya Creek bed at low water located about fifty yards east of the Nanih Waiya Choctaw Mother Mounds. Mississippi Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts and their Historical Facts. Amazing variations of Artifact colors were dependant on river bed sediment materials, enviromental changes and historical time line of topography. Variations of arrow head coloration were also dependant on aboriginal territory where original rock material were collected.

Mississippi Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts and their Historical Facts








Mississippi Historical Aboriginal Territory Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts and their Historical Facts: Dating back thousands of years ago the Indian Arrow Head was a historical part of Mississippi Choctaw and their survival using the shard chipping creation of the Arrow Head for hunting and for protection against their enemies. As you can see on the map of the Geological Investigation of the Alluvial Valley of the Lower Mississippi River, Office of the Mississippi River Meander Belt (Fisk, 1944. Map of ancient courses of the Mississippi River, Cape Girardeau, MO - Donaldsonville, LA. Plate 22-8.). depending on many elements, weather, rising of flood waters, and the areas where the Choctaw took their rock material from to begin chipping away, to begin forming what was to become today as one of the most celebrated part of the Choctaws Historical Artical Artifacts.

Inherited Soil Color
One of the very difficult and complex aspects of soil color analysis is determining if the color is a reflection of the parent material, relic from previous environmental conditions, or due to current weathering and pedogenesis. One of the early comprehensive studies of the Mississippi River Alluvium (Brown, 1970) reported some of the soil color characteristics were believed to be inherited from the parent materials. This research considered the red colors to be relict from the Permian Red Bed materials deposited by rivers and resistant to color change. A more recent study of Louisiana delta soils (Schumaker et al., 1988) recognized that soil color could be inherited directly from initial sediments or created during weathering processes. Scientific explanations of red colors persisting in delta soils as relic and resistant to change must also consider gray clayey soils that occur in far greater proportion and depth.


WATER: Dissolution caves in the Mississippian Leadville limestone, Glenwood Canyon, Interstate-70 --- As acidic water dissolved the limestone, caves formed as seen here and sinkholes formed at the upper surface. In the standard interpretation, the ancient sinkhole land surface at the top of this formation formed vast hills and mountains of topography.

As we will be working on the Historical Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts presentation and their aboriginal Historical background Facts, we also will be adding photos of the actual Historical Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts, their Historical aboriginal collection Facts and where the Arrow head artifacts were actually collected. The Mississippi Choctaw Arrow Head Artifacts over the past 70 years have been collected from a past Mississippi Wild life and Indian Artifact enthusiast and preserved within their own original state.

Mississippi Arrow Head Color preservation was dependant upon climate changes, river bed soil sediment and.or aboriginal territory.

We will be presenting the Choctaw Indian Arrow Head artifacts like the Nanih Waiya Choctaw Mounds are in hopes of bringing more awareness to the importance of preserving our sacred Choctaw heritage by observing Indian artifacts in their original aboriginal settings.
