Bulletin #39 - Desert Technologies
Cover by Thadeus Koster, OR. David Holladay using a stone-tipped hand-drill (p. 29) to drill a hole in a hand-ground piece of Arizona pipestone. The result will be a stone chillum, a stemless pipe used throughout the world. The image was captured at Winter Count 16, held in Maricopa, AZ. Hundreds of desert-related technologies were on display and taught at the week-long event.
