The Folsom Tradition is a name given by archaeologists to a specific Paleo-Indian archaeological culture that occupied much of central North America. Named by Jesse Figgins in 1927.

Numerous Paleoindian cultures occupied North America, with some restricted to the Great Plains and Great Lakes of the modern United States of America and Canada as well as adjacent areas to the west and south west. The Folsom Tradition was characterised by the peoples use of Folsom points as projectile tips and their activities are generally known from kill sites where slaughter and butchering of bison took place and Folsom tools were left behind.
