This pipestone fragment was recovered from the Leary site, an Oneota village, and was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1981. The soft, fine grained material of pipestone enabled the pipe's maker to carve into its platform-like shape. The site straddles the state line between Kansas and Nebraska, with a large portion on the Richardson County, Nebraska side and a smaller portion on the Brown County, Kansas side. The Leary village was occupied primarily during the Late Prehistoric period, with radiocarbon dates indicating a date range of 1194 to 1477 CE.

Date: 1194-1477 CE
