This blanket was a government blanket originally issued to a Kaw or Kansa tribal member, who gave it to a resident of Council Grove. That woman eventually gifted it to a young man who helped her around her house and decades later in 2003 he donated it to the Kansas Historical Society. The blanket was made in the 3-point style (note the three short brown lines). Dimensions: 4' 5" x 2' 8."
