Additional Details:
Black Chicken is shown here with a peace-pipe which has done service at many important gatherings of Indians and white men during the last quarter of a century. The pipe holds an important place in the ritual of all Indian tribes, and no great ceremony is complete without it. It is generally symbolic of peace and truth, and, as a peace emblem, is smoked in solemn ratification of treaties, being itself in the nature of an oath.
