One thing that is known about the Beothuk was their love of the color red. While the use of red ocre was common among Native Americans, no other tribe used it as extensively as the Beothuk. They literally covered everything - their bodies, faces, hair, clothing, personal possessions, and tools - with a red paint made from powdered ochre mixed with either fish oil or animal grease. It was also employed in burials. The reasons are unknown, but speculation has ranged from their religion (about which we know very little) to protection from insects. The practice was so excessive, even the Micmac referred to them as the Red Indians, and it is believed the term "redskin" used for Native Americans probably originated from early contacts between European fishermen and Beothuk.
Hi Folks !
Where can i Find a war tomahawk?
I guess the Indians didn't fight with a Tomahawk, which is at the same time a peacepipe. The hole throughout the shaft for smoke,would make the Tomahawk weak. The back of the blade (Tomahawk) must have been a sharp peak or dull, to crush human head.
Have you a good picture for a Tattoo? I need one as well as an origanal picture of a Peace pipe.
I know the end of a pipe was make of a special stone. What is the name of it?
I would be very happy if you can find anybody to send a few pictures of these two things.
