In this blanket pattern, a horse gallops through a Lakota village of traditional tepees at sunrise, while a geometric Morning Sun greets the dawn over each dwelling. The Lakota word for horse is Sunka Wakan or "Holy Dog," a symbol that stands for strength and unity. This wool blanket was designed by Native American artist by Chelysa Owens-Cyr, and is crafted from start to finish at our Pendleton, Oregon, mill, for quality you can count on.
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.
