A Native American wood ball club, also known as a “war club,” is a traditional weapon used by various Indigenous cultures in North America. They designed their clubs for combat and hunting. Native crafters make them from a single piece of hardwood, such as oak, hickory, or maple. They are designed to be sturdy and effective in close combat. The club usually has a handle or grip at one end and a striking head at the other. The striking head often features a rounded or spherical shape, which is where the term “ball club” comes from. Crafters sometimes decorate the clubs with etched or carved designs. They may create inlaid decorations with beads, shell or metal. Often they paint or stain their clubs in one or more colors.
Native Americans used Wood ball clubs before the arrival of European settlers. They adapted their clubs for use in intertribal conflicts and battles against European colonizers during times of conflict.
