Description
This arrow has a metal point and turkey feather fletches secured with sinew. There is a painted red band with two small green stripes on the shaft.

On March 16, 2015 during a NAGPRA collections review, designated tribal representatives from the three Ute tribes informed History Colorado staff that the grooves along the shaft mean this arrow was likely used for hunting animals, as the grooves allow the animal’s blood to be let out and the arrow to be easily removed.
