Winterhawk eased through the underbrush, concealing himself as best he could. He grasped his homemade spear tightly as the short-faced bear shuffled toward him. Winterhawk took a deep breath, summoned all the strength he had, and, when the bear was very close, with a mighty two-armed thrust, rammed the stone spearhead through the animal's ribs. He was thankful that the stone he chipped so carefully would provide food for himself and his family. Winterhawk was one of our first Americans. He was a Caddo Indian from the tribe known as the Kadohadochos.
The site of the kill could have been where Minden's City Hall now stands.
