Narrative
In an e-mail to Museum staff in September 2017, Mark Curry wrote: "It would have been September of 1982. We took a hike on the mountain to Crater Lake and I found it on the level section leading to the lake. I remember it was a stunning fall day and the dog was snuffling about for voles."
History Of Use
Sue and Dick Harrison gave this item to Museum staff member Eric Holdijk. This item had been in turn given to Sue by her brother (?) Mark Curry. Mark Curry had found it while hiking near Crater Lake on Hudson Bay Mountain. It was found on the level section leading to Crater Lake in 1982.

Description
Dark green rock that is oval in shape. The rock is covered with signs of flint knapping and has sharp edges. The center of the rock is thicker on one side. One end is pointed while the other is round.
History Of Use
This projectile point could be from a dart, spear, arrow shaft or knife, but it is difficult to distinguish one from the other without the shaft. The practice is to separate the arrows and spearheads at the length between 3 and 4 inches. This point is made from the mineral 'chert', but basalt and ground slate were also utilized. Chert is a type of chalcedoneyain deposits are found around Fort St. James, Vanderhoof, and Culculz Lake area. But, all were used for projecting towards a target, thus 'projectile point' describe the function without defining the method of use. This artifact could also be a knife. Occasionally difficult to distinguish from a leaf shaped projectile point, the flaked knife is often asymmetrical in shape, thicker through the middle, sometimes having one blunt end to enable the index finger to comfortably press down on it. Smaller knives were sometimes hafted along the blunt edge. Some of these long slender flaked knives may have been used for ceremonial purposes and are incredible examples of the art of flint knapping.

Description
Triangular dark brown and grey stone tool with one pointed end, a wider body, and one narrow end.
History Of Use
Mr. Johnson had worked for the Liquor Control Board for 25 years in 1974. He was an active Elks member and helped with the building of the Senior Citizens Home. This projectile point is made from the mineral basalt. It is impossible to distinguish a dart, a spear or arrow without the shaft. The rock has been chipped to form sharp edges. The wafer thin blades were removed vertically from the core by pressure flaking. When it became dull, more chips around the edge were flaked off. Very likely most of them were laterally set in grooves along the edge of bone, wood or antler shank to form a projectile point and also used single for incising, shaving and very fine whittling.
