In Native American folklore, every animal has a reason for existence and a legend of why they are on Earth. In Northwest tribal culture, Raven is revered: Even though he's an expert trickster, often fooling other animals out of food or shelter, he's also a friend. With sharp eyes, he's keenly aware of where danger lurks, alerting other animals to the threat. The USA-made wool blanket celebrates raven, depicting him as a striking central figure surrounded by red–a symbol of the danger that he protects us from. Sun, moon and stars that are celestial facets of Raven's life border the design.
