Welcome to TreasureNet... and as far as your find is concerned... no clue.. sorry couldn't help.
There are many here that may know though..
I will say at first glance... to me it does not appear that old ... just by the "look".
A Native American in Kentucky who has a small relics museum it's all relics museum told me that that's what it was it was a passover piece giving out at ceremonyPlantain is called "white mans foot" as it arrived with Europeans. And seeing it meant non native influence.
Doubt very much A Shawnee used it for decoration , but it's the only thing I see in the piece pictured.
It has value. But scruples determine what value a foreign arrival has.
