The Naranjo Museum of Natural  History here in Lufkin, TX will be hosting an Artifact Identification Weekend on Saturday and Sunday February 2nd and 3rd from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. During the weekend, visitors will be able to bring fossils, objects they have found, artifacts, arrowheads and other historical objects to be identified by experts Dr. Neal Naranjo and Morris Weeks.

Morris Weeks serves on the Naranjo Museum board and assists the museum with Native American artifact research and identification. Mr. Weeks has a passion for Native American History and can identify arrowheads and other artifacts as well as matching the object with the correct tribe.

Artifact Identification Weekend is a great opportunity for visitors who have items they would like more information on.

Identifications are free with standard museum admission and visitors can RSVP by emailing Veronica Amoe at

  • Please limit the number of items you bring so that we might help multiple visitors throughout the day.

  • The Naranjo Museum is not able to give monetary appraisals.
  • Depending on the amount of visitors who bring items, time may be limited for identification.
