The seven bison depicted on this 'oxford' color Pendleton Big Medicine Crib Blanket represent the seven directions:
North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Within. Together they symbolize wholeness for mankind and the earth. Prayer pipes signify
mankind’s communication with the Creator. In the center of the blanket, within the circle of life, are four hands representing the diverse
peoples of the world and a new beginning. Shades of brown and green reflect the natural beauty of Mother Earth.
The rare white bison occurs only once in every 10 million births. In 1933, a white buffalo was born in the wild on Montana’s
Flathead Indian Reservation and was called “Big Medicine” to reflect his sacred power. Many Native American tribes consider the
return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new era for the people and Mother Earth.
Tradition spoke of the coming of a herd of pure White Buffalo.
