This diminutive pipe was recovered from a site in Mitchell County that was occupied during the White Rock Oneota phase, an intrusive Late Prehistoric (1000-1650 CE) archeological complex. The pipestone pipe is decorated on two sides with incised diamond shapes and lines. The soft, fine-grained material of the pipestone enabled the carver to shape, smooth, and decorate the pipe. The site was excavated by the University of Nebraska and the collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1987.

Date: 1300-1450 CE
