Arrow straighteners were used by many native tribes. Made from steatite, or soapstone, these unique tools were heated in a fire. Arrow shafts were run through the heated groove and the heat and pressure would straighten the shaft. This stone measures 5 1/2 by 2 1/4 inches and comes with a cotton storage bag. Made by Carson Bates of the Tuolumne Miwok tribe from soapstone found downstream on the Merced River.
