This brass piece, possibly a ring or necklace, was recovered from 14SH302 and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. 14SH302 is the possible location of American Chief's Village, the smallest of three Kansa Indian Villages in Shawnee County. The brass piece, likely a trade item, is decorated with a series of incised zig-zags and diagonal and vertical lines.

Date: 1820-1848
