As the name suggests, Native American war clubs were developed for use in battles. Native Americans would use hardwood to carve war clubs for the purpose of knocking off the enemy’s head. The hitting part was rounded. War clubs are one of the oldest weapons used by the Native Americans. They used young trees to make the toughest war clubs but should be disposed of when the wood starts to decompose.
War clubs cover a variety of weapons that Native American tribes used. Simple clubbing weapons such as stone clubs, wooden clubs, and heavy bones were the first kinds of war clubs. Other examples of simple war clubs were the rabbit stick or throwing stick and the jawbone club. The skills of Native Americans developed and war clubs were then designed with sharpened stone edges and wooden handles that could be used as weapons or tools for throwing or close battles. Although war clubs were made with stone heads, this weapon was very deadly. Upon the arrival of the White Settlers and Traders like the Europeans, new technologies and ideas were introduced. Recent types of war clubs were already made of metals such as steel and iron unlike the previous horn, bone, stone and hardened woods.
