How to Make a Peace Pipe or Sacred Pipe
The calumet peace pipe, or ceremonial pipe, is used by several Native American tribes for rituals and prayers. Additionally, the pipe can be used to seal treaties. Traditional pipes are made of a red pipestone or catlinite which are both easily workable stones. The usage of these pipes varies by tribe. For instance, several tribes believed that the smoke carried prayers to the Creator. Materials to make your own calumet pipe can be purchased at Native American supply stores or pipe-maker supply stores.
