Product Description

The Lakota Way of Life blanket 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, 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 Spainish 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 stripes signify the four winds, the world above and below as well as night and day. It is based on the art of Jim Yellowhawk, a member of the Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux Tribe. Napped and bound with felt. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry Clean only. Made in the USA.
