    This is our most prized possession, the one that means the most, our peace pipe. Of course, if you know anything about peace pipes, you know that this does not belong to us, in fact we are just "holding it" and we must treat it as such.

    We made this peace pipe out of bamboo, deer antlers, rabbit fur, turkey feathers, snake skin, beads, suede, and an arrow-head. We go most of the materials from a Native American shop two cities away and we used the bamboo off of a bamboo tiki torch. It cost us about $50 all-in-all and was totally worth it. The only time we smoke out of this is when we hold "ceremonies" and only with the most open-minded people that we know. We have only used it once. She's a beast...

    The rabbit fur on the front actually has a pouch sewn into it where we can keep our goods. :]]

    Sorry the images really aren't that great. I can't get it to sit (I'm actually afraid to because it's kind of unbalanced, made to be hanged but we don't have the materials yet), so all of the pictures are me holding it. I'll try to get better ones taken later because it really looks SO much better.

    That's awesome. I didn't get what you meant by "holding it" for someone though :s

    Reminds me so much of this sword my dad has. It's a mantel-piece sword that he hangs up for decoration, and when my Rooster died, he took the tail feathers (They were HUGE) and put em on the sword sheathe. It's amazing :D

    Sounds like a really sweet sword!

    - Native American's never claimed their peace pipe's as their own. Instead, they treated them as though they were someone else's property because they were so sacred. So instead of claiming, "It's mine", they "held it" for another.

    You guys really should try one of these. They are SO amazing to smoke out of. You probably couldn't even clear it...I couldn't...but we passed it around and we all felt great.
