Designed by veteran Harvey Pratt (Cheyenne and Arapaho), this blanket design is based on the Warriors' Circle of Honor memorial—set to open in 2020—at Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC.
At the center of the pattern, the Sacred Fire burns amid bands of color 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.
