The Skywalkers design was inspired by Art Deco design elements of some of New York City's iconic skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. It is a salute to the skilled Native American steel workers who built some of the city's most beautiful and famous landmarks, including the George Washington Bridge and recently the new One World Trade Center. Many of the workers are from the Kahnawake Reserve near Montreal, where in 1886 the Mohawk tradition of ironworking began. Hired as unskilled laborers to build a bridge over the St. Lawrence River, the Mohawk quickly earned a reputation as top-notch, sure-footed workers on high steel. Beginning in the 1920s these daring men raised and riveted steel at dizzying heights above the city. Six generations of Mohawk and other Iroquois "skywalkers," renowned for their courage and agility, have helped shape the New York City skyline.

High atop the Big Horn Range in Wyoming sits one of the best-known medicine wheels or sacred hoops. This spoked circle of stones was created by Plains Indians between 300-800 years ago. Astronomers have noted that during the summer solstice the spokes of the wheel point to the rising and setting of the sun and four bright stars. At the center of the 80-foot, wheel-like circle is a pile of stones, or cairn, connected to the rim by spokes of stones. More cairns are found around the rim of the circle. The inner and outer cairns line up with rising stars as they appear for the first time on the horizon after being behind the sun. These appearances marked specific events such as the drought season, planting time or the end of summer.

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.

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.

The Hualapai, or People of the Tall Pines, have been residents of the Grand Canyon region for more than 800 years. Traditionally, they moved between plateau and canyon, hunting game and raising crops wherever water flowed. The Hualapai tell a legend of how a great flood rose, covering Earth in a huge lake of water. No one could move about. Pack-i-tha-a-wi, a Hualapai hero, strode into the water carrying a gigantic flint knife and a heavy wooden club. He plunged the knife into water-covered Earth, using the club to drive it deeper and deeper until a canyon was formed. Through this magnificent canyon, the floodwaters flowed into the Sea of Sunset. The grateful sun shone down on Pack-i-tha-a-wi's handiwork, baking the surface into the vibrant colors and fantastic shapes seen today in the Grand Canyon, including Cedar Mountain. Rising to 7,057 feet, this dramatic cedar-covered mesa is part of the Moenkopi Formation on the southeastern side of Grand Canyon National Park. Napped.
