Inscription. Blackwater Draw consists of several important archaeological sites that have yielded much information about the big-game hunting way of life. Some of the animals that were hunted, like the mammoth, are long extinct. Eastern New Mexico University's Blackwater Draw Museum contains artifacts of the Paleo-Indian cultures that existed here as early as 10,000 B.C.
