From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Plano cultures is a name given by archaeologists to a group of disparate hunter-gatherer communities that occupied the Great Plains area of North America between 9000 BC and 6000 BC.

They are characterised by a range of projectile point tools collectively called Plano points and generally hunted bison although their diets also included pronghorn antelope, elk, deer, raccoon and coyote. By the beginning of the Archaic Era they had begun to adopt a more varied, sedentary approach to subsistence.
