All through the ages Native Americans have used pipes to commune with the spirits. Pipes help to focus your prayers and the smoke mixture is an offering to the spirits.
The bowls are carved from Pipestone found in the Pipestone Quarry in Southwestern Minnesota.This same quarry has been used by the Plains Indians for centuries. The stone has been traded and has fulfilled a variety of spiritual or social needs.
The stems are carved from wood and is made to fit the bowl it comes with. Do not force the bowl and stem together, gently twist the two together until you get a snug fit.
