This pipestone pipe bowl was collected from 14SH302 and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in the 1920s. 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 and incise a line around the stem end of the bowl.

Date: 1820-1848
