This hematite pipe was found in Atchison County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The soft material was in the early stages of pipe production: the bowl and stem holes were just begun and an incised line had been cut three-quarters of the way around the pipe. Additionally, the pipe is decorated with rows of zig zags. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions.
