A calumet is kind of tobacco pipe used by North American Indians, 1660s, from Canadian French calumet (1630s), from Norman French calumet “pipe, reed pipe” (Old French chalemel, 12c., Modern French chalumeau), from Latin calamellus, diminutive of calamus “reed; something made of reed or shaped like a reed.”
