Chiltoskey’s blowgun, bow donated

Larry Maney (standing in white shirt) donates a blowgun and bow that once belonged to the late Goingback Chiltoskey to Ken Blankenship on behalf of the Museum of the Cherokee Indian on Saturday, Aug. 6. The items will become part of the Museum’s permanent collection. Chiltoskey passed away in 2000 at the age of 93. He was a noted Cherokee wood carver. Maney is an EBCI tribal member, born and raised in Cherokee, who now resides in Fall Branch, Tenn.
