The Hopi reservation is inside the Navajo reservation . First there was one reservation. In 1882 a separate rectangular territory was assigned to the Hopi . However, many Navajos continued to live there. For a long time part of the territory was awarded to a joint management of the Hopi and Navajo (Navajo - Hopi Joint Use Area ) (since 1936). The conflicts that resulted have only been settled in 2009.
The meaning of the Arrowhead symbol was to signify alertness. An Arrowhead is a sharpened tip which is added to an arrow. Native American arrowheads were made of stone and were made in a vast range of styles and sizes.The point of an Arrowhead was smaller than the point of a Spear and penetrated skin when fired by a bow. Great strength and a good eye was required when using the Bow and arrow weapon and Poisoned Arrows.
