Clovis people

The term ‘Paleoindians’ describes the earliest inhabitants of North America. The oldest identified Paleoindians, the Clovis people, were hunter and they flourished in North America approximately 11,500 years ago.

Clovis hunters seem to have used the local landscape to their advantage. Dogs appear to have been present at late Paleoindians localities in the western United States. It seems reasonable, then, that they accompanied Clovis bands, perhaps assisting in their hunts.

North America
The Clovis model argues that the diverse Native American cultures emerged from this initial group of humans who originated in a small, northern part of Siberia and crossed the Bering Land Bridge into the Americas.

After their arrival or establishment in the New York it took less than 1000 years for Clovis people to spread throughout North America and into portions of Mexico and South America.

Clovis people seem to have devoted much of their aesthetic attention to the manufacture of their fluted biface points, some of which are remarkably large and made from attractive stone.

In some cases, the stone was obtained from a considerable distance and may have been valued to its appearance. Clovis people also regularly produced osseous tools (made of bone, antler or ivory), including cylindrical roods beveled at one or both ends and functioning as projectile points or foreshafts.
