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

Date: 1790-1830
