"The Hunters"

The state of Florida has witnessed human occupation for more than 12,000 years. The group of migratory hunters known as Paleo-Indian are the ancestors for all generations of Native Americans, and the earliest known inhabitants of Florida. There is undisputable evidence that these early Indians hunted ice-age animals in Florida. Several lancelet projectile points, and a fore shaft made of a mammoth ivory, have been found in a submerged pale kill-site in the Lucille River near Tallahassee. The Florida of 12,000 years ago was considerably drier than today. In fact, the coastline was 100 miles further out into the Gulf of Mexico, where submerged Paleo Indian campsites are being discovered, in today's time. "The Hunters" illustrates a 12,000-year old Paleo-Indian hunting party in deadly combat with a juvenile Mastodon. This scene is depicted as taking place in a dried pond bed within a large grassy plain near Gainesville, Florida called Paynes Prairie where many Paleo point and tools have been found.
