The Pendleton Pathway Blanket is a bold design imbued with traditional Pawnee symbology, from artist Bunky Echo-Hawk. Red, white, yellow and black signify the four races of humankind, the four stages of life and the semi-cardinal directions. Turquoise represents sky, while the four-pointed stars of the Milky Way symbolize the Path of Departed Spirits. A winding path through the blanket’s center traces life’s journey. Robe (twin) size makes an impressive wall hanging and a beautiful home accent when draped over a sofa or folded at the foot of a bed. Reverses for two dramatically different looks.
Created exclusively for the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges. Your purchase helps support their honorable mission.
