Chester Kahn - silversmith and painter, worked for seven years on a mural that adorns the walls of the Ellis Tanner Trading Company in Gallup, N.M., one reason why he recently received the 2008 Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial Living Treasure award. He began working in the 1950's.
Navajo artist Chester Kahn, 72, '...is a humble man', says his niece Seowah Kahn, someone who is 'not in the habit of elevating himself' -- except perhaps to climb a scaffold to paint one of his renowned murals.
