This is a SMOKERHAWK which is a combination peace pipe & tomahawk. Yes ! It really smokes ! This smokerhawk has a turtle shape cut out & would have been present during talks of war. If the talks went well the pipe of the tomahawk would be smoked and passed as a symbol of peace then taken out and buried–the weapon would not be used. (This is where we got the phrase “Bury the hatchet.”)
These buckskin-wrapped brass smokerhawks are wrapped in leather & colorful seed beads, bits of coyote or fox fur and finished in fringe & feathers. Leather color, beads, fur and feathers will vary. This item measures 16″ in length.
A Certificate of Authenticity included.
