Aboriginal instruments as spearheads and knives made of shells, are among the objects over 600 years old on display in the Provincial Museum of History Periquera of the city of Holguin.
David Gomez, museologist of the institution, declared a National Monument in 1978, explained that the tools were found at the site known as Farallones de Seboruco, located in the municipality of Mayari and considered by archeology the Cuban oldest aboriginal settlement.
He said that in the collection other tools are displayed as celt, gouge shell and pottery, which show the customs of the first inhabitants of the Caribbean island.
The expert stressed that the exhibition includes the Ax of Holguin, religious instrument made from olive green stone and declared symbol of the City in 1981 to recognize outstanding personalities for their contributions to society.
The Cuban natives are classified into three groups: Guanahatabeyes, Ciboney and Taino, who used stone, shell and pottery to manufacture their containers and tools dedicated to hunting, fishing and farming.
Among the settlements found in archaeological investigations are Bacuranao in Havana; Canibar Abajo in Matanzas, and Chorro de Maita, in Holguín, where the interaction between the indigenous and Spanish culture is appreciated, reviews the Ecured encyclopedia.
