“History Detectives” on PBS: Possible artifacts from South Cheyenne Peace Chief Black Kettle to be featured
On the â€śHistory Detectivesâ€ť episode airing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 31, on PBS (check local listings), artifacts that may have belonged to South Cheyenne Peace Chief Black Kettle are featured as series host and appraiser Wes Cowan and a team of historians search for the origin of the Indian artifacts.
A summary of the show, provided in a news release, is as follows:
George Bryson has lived with a bigger-than-life family legend for decades. There is reason to believe that Brysonâ€™s great, great-uncle fought alongside General Custer at the battle of Washita River against the Southern Cheyenne. It has been recorded that South Cheyenne leader, Chief Black Kettle, lost his life during the battle in a dawn attack. The family story goes that Brysonâ€™s great-great uncle salvaged two relics from Black Kettle â€“ an Indian neckpiece and legging. Series host and appraiser Wes Cowan is on the case as he and a team of historians help Bryson search for the origin of these Indian artifacts.
The following spokespeople are spotlighted in the episode:
- George Bryson (Milton, VT): Contributor
- Jerome Green (Arvada, CO): Author and Historian
- Joel Shockley: Oklahoma Park Guide (expert)
