Pendleton Blanket - AICF Return of the Sun Pendleton Blanket - AICF Return of the Sun

The traditions and activities of the Iñupiat, today, as in the past, revolve around the changing of the seasons. This blanket, inspired by the artwork of Larry Ahvakana, celebrates the arrival of the sun back to the Arctic and the start of hunting season. The Iñupiat mark this special time with the Messenger Feast—a ceremony where the spirits of the past season's harvest are ushered back into the spirit world. Today, the celebration fosters cultural pride and the regeneration of traditional values. This blanket is a collaboration between Pendleton Woolen Mills and the American Indian College Fund to honor and reawaken a vital part of Native history. A portion of the proceeds will help provide scholarships for students attending tribal colleges. 64” x 80”. Unnapped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Askutasquash Pendleton Blanket - Askutasquash

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. 64” x 80”. Napped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
