Pre-contact Native Americans lacked iron making technology, so tomahawks were not fitted with metal axe heads until they could be obtained from trade with Europeans.

The fur trade began in the 1500’s as an exchange between Indians and Europeans. The name "Tomahawk" came into the English language in the 17th century as an adaptation of the Powhatan (Virginian Algonquian) word.
