Credit Line/Dedication Reginald and Gladys Laubin Collection
Reproduction Yes
Reproduction Information 12/04/03 In a video tape originally labeled as 1996.24.0682, Reginald Laubin identifies this style of pipe stem as one similar to a modern tourist trade item made specifically to be sold for profit, but not authentic in design. While the wooden stem is formed in a similar fashion to those of native design for native ceremonial use, the glued leather and wired bead work (using modern mold-made seed beads) is not. - Sandra Norvell
