This stone pipe blank was recovered from excavation at the 1987 Kansas Archeology Training Program at Hard Chief's Village. Hard Chief's village was a Kansa village site in Shawnee County. The pipe was broken into three pieces when it was recovered. It was marked by a trowel or shovel on the "bowl" end during discovery. The pipes maker had smoothed out the shape of the pipe, but had not begun to carve out the interior. A groove covers nearly half of the "stem" end of the pipe.

Date: 1830-1847
