Pendleton Blanket - Heroic Chief Pendleton Blanket - Heroic Chief

A striking silhouette of a Native American Chief is the central image of this unique, circa 1920s design. The original, vintage blanket was discovered and sent to us by Indian trade blanket collector and author Barry Friedman. We are delighted to reproduce this fascinating blanket. The feathered headdress was a ceremonial war bonnet worn only by chiefs and warriors. The war bonnet was common among Plains Indian men–Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne and Cree–but was seldom worn on the battlefield. Reserved for formal occasions, the golden eagle-feather war bonnet was a spiritual symbol of a man's courage and honor. It was a sign of respect that could be bestowed only by the tribe's elders. The bonnet was also believed to protect the wearer. Later, other Native American tribes adopted the headdress as simply a sign of authority and perhaps as a nod to tourism. Today, a brave or good deed may still be rewarded with an eagle feather. 64” x 80”. Unnapped, felt bound. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.

Pendleton Blanket - Lakota Way of Life Pendleton Blanket - Lakota Way of Life

The Way of Life 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. For the Lakota, the buffalo story is held in their breath, their songs, stories and homes. In this unique design, a Pendleton Blanket serves as a buffalo robe, keeping the body warm and the spirit strong. The tepee and blanket strips signify the four winds, the world above and below, as well as night and day.

The Way of Life blanket is based on the art of Jim Yellowhawk, a member of the Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux Tribe. Mr. Yellowhawk lives and works in the beautiful He Sapa Black Hills of South Dakota.

Napped and felt bound, 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Woven in our Northwest mills. 64" x 80".
