This grub hoe blade was recovered from the Blue Earth Village site in Pottawatomie County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960. Grub hoes were used to cut through tough roots and stems. The hoe has a partial manufacture's name and is marked with three pressed circles. Blue Earth village was inhabited by members of the Kanza Tribe. Many lodge depressions were still visible on the surface of the village in the 1880s.

Date: 1795-1830
