An indian artifact? ?

I have an item my grandmother gave me that she got from her great-grandmother who was a cherokee Indian. It is 3 sticks tied together like a TP and has a stone hanging in the middle with a leather strap. Does anyone have any idea what it is or was used for?

    It sounds like something that would hold a pot over a fire. it is hard to say without knowing how big it is.

    There’s not enough information. Are the sticks, stone, or strap decorated? How tall is it? Did your grandmother give you any information?

    I’d suggest you contact the Cherokee Museum:
