First a little history about the peace pipe.There is several different names for it.Tt has click
been around for a long time. The sacred pipe has two purposes only, To speak with the spirit world.and during peace treaties was the only time it was smoked. Native Americans had their own personal pipes to smoke that they would carry around with them, but, the Sacred pipe had only
one carrier and that was his sole purpose in life was to be the keeper of the sacred pipe. To keep it protected and only bring it out during sacred ceremonies.
The peace pipe is not only for native Americans, Anyone can use it but please respect it. It is a sacred item.
The sacred pipe is used with tobacco and kinnic kinnic. A lot of people think marijuana is smoked out of it. That is not true.
The smoke from the peace pipe is believed to rise to the heavens to the great spirit .(waken tanka)To answer our prayers and to give thanks to the great spirit.
Different materials are used from different tribes to make the sacred pipe. I am going to use bamboo and deer horn
I punched the joint thru to fit the mouth piece in
the end. I cut a piece of horn for the pipe bowel with a hacksaw. It is a good idea to where a mask ! Also, use a vice
pipe bowel hole
to clamp what you are cutting.The bowel part above.the end of the bowel I grinded down to make it fit in the hole .I drilled a hole thru the middle with my dremel rotary tool and super glued it in the hole . click
Note:this peace pipe is for decoration only so it is OK to use glue on the bowel.
Now for the mouth piece I cut smaller section of bamboo with my hacksaw ,shaped it to fit and glued it into the end where I punched the joint out.
