- Curator's comments
From acquisition "Trinidada".
In Hudson 1987 the author notes that these 13 arrows form parts of eight sets, as laid out below:
VAN,22.a & d are in Set 7 with VAN,29.c, VAN,22.b-c are in Set 8, VAN.22.e-f are in Set 9 and VAN,22.j is in Set 6 with VAN 16. Together these form part of Group B and were probably collected in the Monterey/Bodega Bay region.
VAN,22.g-h are in Set 10 with VAN,27.g, VAN,22.i is in Set 11 with VAN,23.a-b and VAN, 22.n, k and m are alone in Sets 15,16 and 17. Together these Sets are part of Group C, which was likely collected in northwest California, perhaps from the Hupa, Yurok or Tolowa.
