This mano was recovered from the Blue Earth village site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1880. Blue Earth village was a Kansa Indian village in Pottawatomie County. Many lodge depressions were still visible on the surface in the 1880s. Manos were likely used as the upper hand-held millstone for grinding foods and pigments.

Date: 1790-1830
