Where to Buy Indian Arrowheads Online
Hunting arrowheads is an incredibly fun and exciting hobby. Heading out early in the morning to walk through a local farmers field hunting for arrowheads is one of my favorite things to do.
There are many reasons arrowhead hunters do what they do. Some hunt them in order to rescue the ancient arrowheads before they get crushed by a modern plow. While others just simply enjoy getting out into nature, or out into the woods, on a warm day in order to cool off. While others do it simply for the thrill of the hunt.
No matter what the reason for arrowhead hunting is, the fact remains that many times, at the end of the day, we just end up empty handed.
But if you’re like me, you still have the nagging desire to add another point to your collection. That is when I turn to the internet to help me find my next Indian arrowhead.
Here is a list of credible sellers of authentic Indian arrowheads for sale.
Enjoy the hunt!

Buying And Selling Native Indian Arrowheads and Artifacts: Legal or Not?
You may be wondering if the arrowhead you’re buying is legal or not. The following excerpts from the article, Buying and Selling Native Artifacts by Dennis Gaffney, might be able to help answer the question whether or not the item you’re considering buying is legal.
“For collectors interested in Native American artifacts, there are a few important guidelines to bear in mind.…When is it legal for individuals to buy and sell, or even own, such Native American objects?
The question is a simple one, but its answer is complicated, requiring a careful reading of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). NAGPRA is a federal law passed in 1990 that provides a process for museums and federal agencies to return certain Native American “cultural items”—human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony—to lineal descendants or Indian tribes. Museums and federal agencies are almost always the ones challenged or prosecuted under the law.
…Yet if you are unsure whether NAGPRA applies to a certain piece you are interested in buying or selling—the law is often open to interpretation—both Dr. Molloy and Bruce recommend that you make sure to obtain a written receipt that lists a well-documented chain of ownership.
“Make sure to get paperwork by a reputable seller so you have something to stand on if it blows up in your face,” Bruce says. “If the guy says it’s not a problem to buy it, have him put it in writing. If there is a problem, you can take him to court and say you want your money back.””
