In The Region:
A 2,000-year old pipe, carved in the shape of a person, may soon become Ohio’s official state artifact. The Adena Pipe was excavated in 1901 from a mound in Chillicothe believed to have been built by Adena Indians. Now, state senators have OK’d a bill declaring the pipe to be Ohio’s official artifact. Charleta Tavares is one of the 33 senators who unanimously voted for the declaration.

“I think it’s important for us to remember our history. And this is yet another way for us to recognize the cultures that inhabited our communities long before we did, and to recognize the contributions they’ve made to our state and to our history.”

Fourth- and fifth-graders from the Columbus School for Girls have been campaigning for the Adena Pipe to be honored this way. Now the Ohio House will take up the measure.
Listener Comments:

Thanks for the mention today on NPR! I am one of the two teachers who have spearheaded this project with students from Columbus School for Girls. I just wanted to add a quick correction to your mention. Seventh grade students actually began this process, with grades 4 and 5 supporting their efforts. Student representatives from all three classes spoke at the Senate committee meeting. Charlotte Stiverson and I, Form IV teachers, thank you for all of your support and the media communication you have provided about this almost four year initiative.
THANK YOU!
