    How to Drill Calumet Pipe Stems

    Calumet pipes, often erroneously called “peace pipes,” are ceremonial tobacco pipes which were important in many Native American tribes. Calumets were often made from local varieties of pipestone, but could also be made from wood, clay and, post-Columbus, metal. These pipes would then be fitted with a wooden pipe stem. Using native technology, the stems would be drilled out and fitted into the bowl of the calumet. Using this same technology, it is possible to drill your own calumet pipe stem.
