This light green stone fragment, possibly turquoise, may have once been part of a pendant. It was recovered from the Killdeer site in Cowley County, a Lower Walnut focus Great Bend aspect site in Cowley County with numerous pits, basins and post molds. The Killdeer site was excavated during the Kansas Archeology Training Program field school in 1994 and later with Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew members. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and affiliated tribes.

Date: 1500-1725 CE
