Defensive shields were common among the Pueblo tribes and were often made of a single layer of thick animal hide. They afforded protection against arrows, lances, even low caliber guns, but more likely used as a costume piece for dances and ceremonials. Shield often had hand loops on the back and holes for a strap to hang it over the shoulders
