The "L" shaped pipe bowl is made of catlinite inlaid with arrow cartouches, rings and geometric designs in lead.
It is mounted on a wooden pipe carved with two twisted grooves.

The pipe is linked to a ritual practice. Smoking the pipe could be the occasion to commemorate an event, inaugurate a facility or celebrate an important fact. It is said that the smoke went up to the sky where the Great Creator is. The pipes were kept in long bags.
