This pipe was given to Chief Frank Haucke by J. G. Braecklein, Kansas City architect in 1930 and to the Kansas Historical Society in 1957. The soft, fine grained material of pipestone enabled the pipe's maker to carve it into its final shape. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions. Frank Haucke was named an honorary chief in 1925 by the Kanza people for his help in preserving their culture.
