Warriors Circle of Honor Blanket
The Warriors' Circle of Honour memorial at Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, commemorates the service and sacrifice of Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native Veterans—past, current and future. The memorial, designed by veteran Harvey Platt, was the inspiration for this blanket—also designed by Mr. Pratt. At the centre of the pattern, the Sacred Fire burns amid bands of colour representing Air, Fire, Water and Earth. A border of stars and stripes has openings to allow spirits to enter. Four hands wearing feathers of bravery and triumph mark the cardinal directions, while oval shapes echo the museum's Grandfather Rocks.
Pendleton provides a portion of the product cost to the Smithsonian to support its educational mission.
