RABBIT STICKS Photos Pictures

This authentic antique California Indian rabbit stick photo is as pictured (photographed through the display glass) in the RIVERSIDE MUNICIPAL MUSEUM in Riverside California. A new background was digitally inserted to abstract the artifact from the painted display wall.

The antique primitive throwing weapon has some tribal designs or logos burned into its wood.

This is a genuine rabbit stick of the California North American Native Americans Luiseño Luiseno tribe and was commonly used by the Indigenous peoples of Southern California and northern Baja California, Mexico, including the Kumeyaay, to kill rabbits and other small wild game during hunting expeditions in the greater San Diego, Southern California area for thousands of years.

From the Riverside Municipal Museum placard:

Made in 1932, this RABBIT STICK was made by Manuel Chaparosa, Luiseño, at Warner's Ranch. This carved white oak stick was thrown when hunting rabbits and small game.
