Cherokee Nation Selling New Cultural Pendleton Blanket

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown November 19th, 2013 Last Updated on: November 19th, 2013

Just in time for the colder weather, another Pendleton collaboration is unveiled. Pendleton teamed up with the Cherokee Nation and their Award-winning Lead Graphic Designer Dan Mink for the blanket.

Central to the Pendleton design is a seven-pointed star, reflecting the seven clans of the Cherokee people. Mink also chose a starburst pattern to represent the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes originating from one fire. The color tan represents buck skin; red, black and yellow are artistic colors found in Cherokee artifacts; and gold comes from the Cherokee Nation seal. The border of the blanket is a Southeastern motif, and basket weaving was the inspiration for the inner corners.

The blanket retails for $250 and can be purchased locally at the Cherokee Nation Gift Shop in Tahlequah and the Cherokee Art Gallery inside Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa.  It is also available online at http://cherokeegiftshop.com/category/63-pendleton-products.aspx.  To read more visit the Cherokee Nation website.
