A wool blanket created in collaboration with artist Jim Yellowhawk. The design pays tribute to life in Pte Oyate, the Buffalo Nation. Many Plains tribes were reliant on the buffalo for food, tepee covers, shields, arrowhead and even soap. The symmetrical design reflects the world above and below, as well as night and day. Part of the Legendary Collection, this design honors stories and symbols of Native American cultures. Each year a new USA-made collector’s blanket is added to the series.
Jim Yellowhawk belongs to the Itazipco Band of the Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux Tribe. His work encompasses many different media, including dance. “Traditional spirituality is woven into my daily life, work and way of being,” he says. Jim divides his time between South Dakota’s Black Hills and Golden Bay, New Zealand.
