Pipestone Pipe Fragments from the Kansas River Valley

Pipestone Pipe Fragments from the Kansas River Valley
Date: 1650-1850 CE
These pipestone pipe fragments were donated in 1925 to the Kansas Historical Society. They were collected in the Kansas River valley and may have once been fragments of two elbow pipes. The soft, fine grain material enabled the carver to shape and smooth the piece. The long piece has tobacco residue, indicating it had been smoked before breaking. The small fragment may have broke during production. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions. In Kansas, these pipes are generally made by American Indians between 1650 to 1850.
