These pipestone pipe fragments were collected from the Malone village site in Rice County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1994. Pipes such as these were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions. Two pipe bowl rims are on the top row. The one on the left has an incised line. Two of the fragments on the right in the bottom row show tobacco residue, evidence of having been smoked prior to breaking. The Malone site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that had dense artifact deposits.

Date: 1432-1657 CE
