Historic Pipe Will be Exhibited in Oklahoma

The Ohio Historical Society has written an interesting article about its "recent Native American Week programs" which  represent "products of a budding relationship between the Ohio Historical Society and members of American Indian cultures historically connected to Ohio."

"The loan of a 206-year-old peace pipe with significance to Ohio history and to the history of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, plus recent Native American Week programs are two products of a budding relationship between the Ohio Historical Society and members of American Indian cultures historically connected to Ohio."

"Sharing of artifacts is one outcome of a growing relationship between the Ohio Historical Society and the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma led by Chief Glenna Wallace. An American Indian pipe with deep significance to early Ohio history and to members of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe will go on display in Oklahoma starting in December.

The Ohio Historical Society will loan the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma a ceremonial peace pipe tomahawk that Shawnee leader Tecumseh presented to early Ohio statesman Thomas Worthington in 1807.
The pipe will be on exhibit at the Indigo Sky Hotel and Casino in Wyandotte, Okla., for one year starting Dec. 6, 2013. The casino is owned and operated by the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, whose members are lineal descendants of the Shawnees who lived in a region that included Ohio before being relocated to the west in 1831."
