This pipe was recovered from the Buresh site, a Middle Ceramic village in Sumner County. The soft, fine grain pipestone enabled the carver to shape and smooth the piece and incise a line around the bowl and add a cross shape to one end. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions. In Kansas, these pipes are generally made by Native Americans between 1650 to 1850.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
