Makah Cultural and Research Center Online Museum


Wood, boughs, bark, and roots furnished Makahs with raw materials not only for household goods, but also for fishing and hunting equipment.

One hundred bows have come from Ozette, but only two stone arrowheads. It was points of wood and bone that tipped Ozette arrows. More than 1,500 such points have been recovered.

Sea Otters
Sea otters are represented by bone and teeth in the Ozette deposits.
