This arrow is made with a wooden shaft. The nock (at the rearmost end) is notched. The feather fletchings are held in place with wrapped sinew and are from hawks. The point end of the shaft is blunt and does not have a point is inserted into it. The arrow is grooved. 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 are meant for hunting animals, as the grooves allow the animal’s blood to be let out and the arrow to be easily removed. They also stated that the arrow is of Ute manufacture.
