The Native American Indian and plains buffalo coexisted in an organic balance between nature and man. The American Indian developed a close and many times spiritual relationship with the buffalo. The sacred plains buffalo became an integral part of the evolving religion of the Plains Indian. Their diet of primarily buffalo created a unique physiological relationship. The adage “You are what you eat” was never more applicable than in the symbiotic relationship between the buffalo and the Plains Indian. The Plains Indian culture was intrinsic with the buffalo culture. The two cultures could not be separated without mutual devastation. The pipe tomahawk is in excellent condition with no repairs or damage. Nice buffalo society cutout on the head, the cutout is the face of the buffalo. The head is a work of art! Ash haft is original to the head. The brass tacks are original old tacks. All along the haft are many ceremonial file branding marks made by placing a file or rasp in the fire until it was bright red and then burning the file into the haft. The haft is oval shaped and is solid and very strong. VERY NICE patina all over, really shows its age! The buffalo head cutout is a very desirable style. Conservatively dated to 1880 but may be earlier. The haft of the tomahawk is measuring 24″ long and the head is measuring about 11″ long. From a relative’s advanced collection.
