An 1888 photo of Kitch Hawk, also known as Jake the Bracelet Maker. He is wearing a Chilkat blanket. (Isn't it beautiful?)
I am assuming that because he is wearing a Chilkat blanket, he is a Chilkat Native American. The Chilkats are an active tribe today in Alaska in Klukwan (southern Alaska).And I'm assuming because he was known as Jake the Bracelet Maker, he was a jewelry maker.
