Sioux pipe and pipestem
Replica Sioux pipe stem ca. 1870 - Quilled and Beaded. Stem measures approx. 34 inches long not including the pipe bowl
note: our pipes have been neither smoked or blessed

We all wrap our stems differently, We never connect the bowl until we smoke it. it is a sacred item. We keep it wrapped in red cotton cloth filled with sage, and in a pipe bag. It is called the four winds crying chanupa, when it is smoked, white tears flow from the pipe stone.
