About Native American Tomahawks
A tomahawk slices through the air, narrowly missing the handsome hero, and you gasp along with the rest of the audience. Unfortunately, Hollywood movies do not always represent artifacts like the Native American tomahawk in a positive light. In reality, the historical tomahawk actually experienced much more use as an everyday tool, rather than as a weapon of war. The small hatchets are lightweight and easy to use with one hand. In the past, Native Americans decorated their tomahawks to reflect their personalities and stations in life, and adornments like eagle feathers, onyx, and turquoise turn historical tomahawks into treasured finds for modern collectors. Native American artifacts are popular with history buffs and with those who simply love to decorate their homes with Southwestern themes. It is possible to find everything from primitive stone tomahawks to elaborately decorated tomahawks on eBay. The collection of Native American regalia is usually very impressive and includes headpieces, breech cloths, jingle dresses, shawls, and beaded moccasins, all of which perfectly complement the Native American tomahawk in your treasured collection.
