This blanket's design pays tribute to the Indigenous person representing more than one tribe. An hourglass shape evokes the matriarchal society of the Navajo, a serape layout honors the Yaqui, and turquoise symbolizes the Pueblo of Laguna—the Many Nations of the artist, Dustin Lopez. Woven from pure virgin wool in our Pendleton, Oregon, mill.
About the artist:

With a passion for creativity, Mr. Lopez aspires to be a role model on and off the reservation.
