The buffalo primarily roamed in the Great Plains of North America becoming a vast source of food and weapon material for early Native Americans. The buffalo jawbone was an effective weapon for close quarters fighting. The teeth of the jawbone could be sharpened and polished, and the jaw could hold other attachments to make it an effective weapon. Although not the most commonly used weapon, once you threw your spear, or used all your arrows, and wanted to close in with a weapon, the jaw bone could inflict real damage. Coming later to the Plains, the Cherokee would have learned to use this weapon from tribes in the area. The jawbone is even mentioned being used as a weapon in the Bible.


War Shields were made to be used as a means of defense on horseback only and were therefore found as a defensive weapon amongst the Great Plains Indians. The war shields were made from the skin of a buffalo's neck which had been smoked and hardened with glue extracted from the hoofs of the bison. The more skins used in making the war shields, the better protection they would offer. The war shields were used to deflect arrows but could also provide protection against the spear of an enemy.
