This pipestone pipe bowl was recovered from 14SH302 and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1956. 14SH302 is the possible location of American Chief's Village, the smallest of three Kansa Indian Villages in Shawnee County. The soft fine grain material enabled the carver to shape and smooth the piece, incise lines at the top and bottom of the bowl, and incise chevrons on the foot of the pipe. The rim of the bowl has been almost completely broken off. No tobacco residue remains, but scratches on the bowl's interior are visible.

Date: 1820-1848
