CLOVIS SPEAR POINT - The first inhabitants of the New World are called Paleo-Indians/Paleo-Americans. Paleo means old. There were three groups of Paleo-Americans. There were the Folsom, Clovis, and Plano. Some of these people live along the Trinity River. We don't know much about them but they were big game hunters. It is not known what happened to them. Either they disappeared or more likely changed so much that they became unrecognizable by 8000 B.C.E.
