Perhaps the most ubiquitous symbol associated with the Native Americans is the Tomahawk. The name was derived from an algonquian word 'tamahakan'; referring to an implement with a stone-head lashed with thongs to a wooden handle. Later, European-made iron or steel hatchets called trade tomahawks began to replace the stone weapons. Primarily used to chop wood and drive stakes into the ground, warriors also used their Tomahawks as clubs during hand-to-hand combat or threw them at their enemies from a distance. The tomahawk also had symbolic, ceremonial uses. It was laid on the ground at council meetings of some tribes. When the war leader took up the Tomahawk it meant that a decision for war was approved. To bury the tomahawk or 'bury the hatchet' meant an end to warfare. Fits most standard minifig hands.
