Hair Pipes

Hair pipes are long hollow beads, originally made of conch shell by southeastern Indians (Chickasaw, Creeks, and Cherokee). Hair pipe beads of bone appeared around the late 1800s when white traders brought corn cob pipes to the Ponca Indians of the midwest - the Poncas found that the bone pipe stems made excellent beads. Later, hair pipes were made of horn and even synthetic materials like plastic.

The term "hair pipe" was likely coined by early white traders who saw indians wearing the long beads as hair ornaments.
