The ceremonial peace pipe has been smoked to seal a covenant or treaty, or to offer prayers in spiritual ceremonies. There are several different ways a peace pipes can be made. Peace pipe bowls are usually made of red pipestone (calinite) a fine-grained stone of a rich red color. The pipestone quarries have traditionally been considered neutral ground among warring Native American Indian tribes, as people from many nations journeyed to the quarry to obtain the sacred pipestone.

A type of herbal Native American tobacco or mixture of herbs was usually for special smoking sessions, with each region's Native Americans using the plants that were locally considered to have special qualities or a culturally condoned basis for ceremonial use.

Native American Sioux people used long stemmed pipes for ceremonies while other Native American Indian tribes such as the Catawbas in the southeastern United States used ceremonial pipes formed as round, footed bowls with a smoke tip projecting from each cardinal direction on the peace pipe bowl.

Calumets (peace pipes) and other Native American ceremonial pipes have often been given the misnomer, "peace pipe"; this is a European term based on only one type of pipe and one way it was used. Various types of ceremonial peace pipes have been used by many Native American cultures, with the style of pipe, materials smoked, and ceremonies being different to the spirituality of those particular Nations.

For ceremonial usage, the smoke from the peace pipe is believed to carry prayers to the attention of the Creator or other powerful spirits. Native American Lakota tradition has it that White Buffalo Calf Woman, brought the Chanunpa to the people, and instructed them in its symbolism and ceremonies.

Red Pipestone - Catlinite is an iron-rich, reddish, soft quartzite slate typically excavated from below groundwater level, as the stone erodes rapidly when exposed to the weather and outside air. Red pipestone was used by the Eastern Tribes, Western and Great Basin Tribes, and the Plains Tribes, with sources of the stone in Tennessee (South Central), Minnesota (Pipestone), and Utah. Sacred pipestone comes from Pipestone, Minnesota. The quarry itself is located just north of the town at the Pipestone National Monument. Today only people of Native American ancestry are allowed to quarry the pipestone from this quarry. The pipestone or catlinite from this quarry is softer than any other catlinite.
