The hatchet axe was used by Native Americans for important ceremonies, such as signing a peace treaty.  The Hatchet Axe was a dual purpose weapon used as a close contact weapon or as a throwing weapon.  It was used for cutting an enemy using a swinging action.  The Hatchet Axe was most commonly used as a close contact weapon but on occasions throwing the hatchet was a necessary action. The Native American was skilled in the art of hatchet throwing but the decision to do this in battle was never taken lightly as it would mean that they had lost their most important weapon. Hatchet throwing was more often used as a sport by the Native Americans who take part in various hatchet throwing contests when large groups gathered for special events or for trading.  This hatchet ax is decorated with beads, animal fur, leather, stone and wood.  It measures:
