Quotation:
SAMUEL A. BARRETT
University of California Publications in American Archaeology and Ethnology, 1917

"A bear doctor usually carried one and sometimes two elk-horn daggers. Such a dagger was from six to ten inches in length and was made by pounding at its base and breaking off the large end point of an elk antler and sharpening its tip."
