If iron tomahawks and pipe tomahawks did not originate in Indigenous communities, are they authentic artifacts and markers of Native American culture? Some of the early anthropologists and collectors of the late 19 th and early 20 th centuries believed that age and culture went hand and hand, as though Native-ness somehow ended with European contact.
Before Native interactions, there would have been no need for the combination of a pipe and a weapon, since Europeans did not associate the smoking of pipes during rituals and ceremonies with the intention of making peace. Relations between European colonial settlers and Natives were often violent as symbolized by the tomahawk and often aspired to be peaceful as symbolized by the pipe. During my research on objects produced for use in the Indian trade, I became keenly aware of the influence of Native people on colonial and European culture, and in primary sources, Native American and First Nations tribal leaders frequently referenced the importance of calumets and pipe tomahawks.
Yet, when Native culture is overwhelmingly written about and displayed by non-Natives, crucial nuances may be left out of the conversation. Also, in the written records, there is an overwhelming mention of men when discussing tomahawks and warriors. Did they smoke pipes to negotiate peace?
Are the objects they handled laying silent in this and other museum collections? Indigenous artifacts are often seen, by Native history-keepers, to have agency; they are powerful beings with histories of their own. The pipe tomahawk lives in that liminal space in the midst of the colonial frontier, where the threat of war and the hope of peace frequently co-existed.
