lived in North America about eleven thousand five hundred years ago. The
name "Clovis" comes from a town in New Mexico. It was there
that archaeologists first found one of their hunting sites. We know of
them because of the arrow points they made and left behind them.
Archaeologists give these peoples such names as Clovis, Folsom, or
Woodland. The names are not what they called themselves. Their languages
have disappeared. We will never know their real names.
