Chickasaw craftsman upholds ancient hunting tradition


Ada —

A personal goal this hunting season will be crafting a bow from two pieces of wood.

“I watched my father do it,” Mr. Walker said. “I have tried it but was not successful. This year, I will try again.”

The bow likely will end up in the hands of his grandson, Amon.

“He is a much better shot than I am,” he said. “He has won many trophies for his skill as an archer.”

He will be encouraging his grandson to begin making bows, he said, so the “the craft will live on through the next generation.”
