During the Maand van de Geschiedenis (Month of History) the Amsterdam Pipe Museum pays special attention to the tomahawk. This iconic war pipe of the North American Indians looks dangerous, with an impressive ax under the pipe bowl. Our guides tell the complete story in their tour, because the tomahawk is not only a weapon but also an object with an important symbolic and ceremonial value. Until October 31st our cabinet for objects on temporary view show some nice examples of these Indian tomahawks from our reserve collections.
