A medium size, thin, corner to side notched point with deep notches set close to the base. Bases vary from concave to convex. Ishi, known as the last wild Indian in North America and the last survivor of his tribe, in fear for his life, turned himself in to the local authorities in Oroville, California. The year was 1911. The University of California museum offered him sanctuary for the rest of his life. While there, he knapped arrowpoints which were given to friends and acquaintances he met at the museum. For more information, read "Ishi in Two Worlds", 1963, University of Calif. Press at Berkeley.
