Paula: "A Ketoh is a heavy wrist band, or bow guard, to protect an archer from the snap of the bow string. Originally they were plain thick leather straps. Once silvermsithing became a part of Navajo life, ketohs began to be decorated with silver and stones, usually turquoise. Read more about Ketoh bow guard."

Cryer Creek Collection Cryer Creek Collection

The jewelry and artifacts in this collection were gathered by a man born in 1933 and who has been collecting for over 60 years. He has a great love of Native American people, their culture and customs and their art. Living and working most of his life in Texas, he has been particularly drawn to Lakota, Comanche, Apache, Pueblo, Navajo and Zuni pieces. We will be listing items from his collection over the next year, so keep an eye on the Newly Listed Items page.
