The Pomo of California were expert arrowmakers. Here we have a gallery of arrowheads from our archive.

“The Dry Creek Phase” lasted from 500 BCE to 1300 CE. During this phase, we settled the lands at Sonoma Lake more extensively and permanently. Archaeologists believe Pomo took over the lands from the earlier peoples in this phase. They created 14 additional sites in the Warm Springs and Upper Dry Creek areas.  The bow and arrow appeared as a main technological advancement.
