Pendleton%20Woolen%20Mills - Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection

Buffalo Creation Story - Legendary Collection
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.

Buffalos are not typically associated with Navajo culture. So when contemporary Navajo artist Andrew Hobson discovered a story of how the buffalo evolved in Navajo creation stories, he was fascinated. Hobson's original painting of the Buffalo-Who-Never-Dies of the White Buffalo Tribe inspired this Pendleton blanket. In the tale, Buffalo became angry with Holy Man for having two buffalo women as his wives. Holy Man killed the angry buffalo with magic arrows and wands. But to his dismay, all the buffalos began to die. Then sad, Holy Man brought the buffalo back to life and showed him how to revive all the other buffalo. The central figure shows the angry buffalo fractured in pieces to symbolize his death and journey back to life. Four buffalo tribes are shown inside protective medicine hoops, and the four sacred mountain ranges of the Navajo surround the central buffalo. The artist frames the work in the abstract rainbow symbolizing his personal Yeii, or protective deity. Napped. Felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

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.

Pendleton%20Woolen%20Mills - Askutasquash

Askutasquash
Category: Bed Collections

The central image on this design showcases images reminiscent of the squash blossom beadwork crafted by Native American jewelry makers of the Southwest. The iconic "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. Some say the squash blossom bead design is directly connected to the importance of the plant itself. Others say it is simply a pleasing design element, perhaps inspired by the buttons on pants worn by the Spanish and Mexican horsemen. Regardless, there is no denying the importance of squash to numerous Native American farmers. The word is from Narragansett Indians of Rhode Island. They used the word askutasquash which meant "eaten raw or uncooked." Different kinds of squash were grown as food by numerous tribes. It was the first of the "three sisters" (squash, corn and beans) to be domesticated. Beautiful bead design or flower of sustaining crop, the squash blossom deserves celebrating. Napped, suded trim, 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
