By the end of the Seminole Wars in 1858, the Seminole population of Florida was reduced from thousands to a few hundred. Most had been driven out of Florida, but small bands remained in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp. There they retained their culture - farming, hunting alligators and building thatch-roofed homes called chickees. They traveled in dugout canoes made from cypress logs, visiting trading posts along the Miami River with pelts and egret plumes to trade for supplies. When the first sewing machines arrived, Seminole women began making intricate colorful patchwork by sewing long strips of fabric together. In 1928 the Tamiami Trail, the highway from Tampa to Miami, opened and the Seminole saw new trade opportunities. They took advantage of the tourist market for crafts such as patchwork and palmetto dolls. Their entrepreneurial success along the Tamiami Trail is a testimony to Seminole creativity and resilience.

Wind and Thunder are brothers in the sky, according to Native American legend. Long ago, they quarreled when Thunder claimed he could do good on Earth without help.

The Great Plains cover over 500,000 square miles of North America. Long ago, the Great Plains were covered by tall grasses that fed millions of bison. These herds in turn supported the nomadic tribes that hunted and farmed this vast expanse, including Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Pawnee, Crow, Comanche, Arapaho and more. This design pays tribute to those waving grasslands with a vibrant pattern of sinuous lines. Harmonious bands of color reflect the balance of life among the nations who called it home.

Way Of Life - Legendary Collection

Way Of Life - Legendary Collection

Manufacturer: Pendleton Woolen Mills
Category: Blankets/Robes/Throws

For more than a century, Pendleton Woolen Mills has woven the legends and symbols of Native American tribes into beautiful blankets. Native Americans were our first and remain our most loyal customers. In the early 20th century, Pendleton was among the few American mills making blankets specifically for the Indian trade. A Pendleton blanket continues to signify honor and respect. For a hundred years, Native Americans have acknowledged births, deaths and major milestones and accomplishments with the gift of a Pendleton blanket.
This design is based on the art of Jim Yellowhawk. It is a visual representation of Pte Oyate - the Buffalo Nation. For many Plains Tribes, the buffalo sustained all life. Every part of the animal was used - the meat for food, and hides for robes, tepee covers and shields. Horns were crafted into bowls and arrow points. Fat was rendered for candles and soap. Swift horses, introduced by the Spanish in the 16th century, became essential to the buffalo hunt. Napped and felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
