About Nike N7 Blanket

This USA-made wool blanket illustrates the past, present, and future of Native peoples. The central N7 motif represents the impact of each person (the diamond) on the three generations before and after (arrows). A storm pattern with zigzags of lightning honors heritage, while steps show the path to overcoming life’s challenges. The rich colors were inspired by traditional dyes, and reflect the beauty of the southwestern landscape. This blanket was designed by Tracie Jackson, a Diné artist and designer from Star Mountain in the Navajo Nation. She is a 4th generation artisan. Her grandparents and mother are silversmiths, and both her maternal great grandmothers are rug weavers. Her family encouraged her to study the traditional art forms of her tribe, and with their support, she became a painter, jeweler, beader, and graphic designer. Tracie studied design at the University of Oregon and currently works in Portland, Oregon, designing for the Nike N7 program. This has been her dream job since she was 14 years old when she first saw N7 at a Native basketball tournament. “I was taught to get an education and use it to help our Native community, which pushed me to become a designer for N7.”

Good luck!  Remember to enter daily for more chances to win!

      Colors, shapes and forms of nature. Earth’s maternal magnificence. Subtly bold yet understated. Sharp and clear-cut edges on soft, warm wool. Give story of a proud, enduring people. Earth and nature protects and provides. We come to know mother’s ways. She envelopes us in her richness. Both in harsh realities and in a forgiving nature. As our bones grow cold and weary, we long for mother’s warmth the wool blanket of our people’s represent. Spread wise across the shoulders in our hands with feet placed firmly on the soil. We wrap ourselves in the warmth like a cocoon. Like a small bat or wise owl shielding ourselves from that which chills the bones. We feel the warm take over. The warm if our own body insulates. It feels like being secured in a papoose. Relaxed. We dare dream if spirits of ancestors and our spirit animals. Come to visit. As we sit at the fire until dawn’s light.

  5. Just looking at this amazing blanket speaks to me and says, ‘Lay down with me and cuddle on your afternoon naps. I will share it with family and friends on cold winter nights. What an honor to display in my home to show the talent of the designer.

      I would love this blanket,if it is supporting the indigenous people in some way. Sorry if that word is offensive. but I would love even more to learn more about this nation’s 1st people. Sadly we werent taught much in school. My mother and I were just having a conversation about the Cherokee tribes who owned land near where we live and she was absolutely right I was so excited and wondered how she even knew all of this information without learning it in school. I’ve been watching videos and looking at people tell their stories.

    This amazing blanket needs a loving home so that it can be shared with my family. The blanket speaks to me and says, lay down with me and cuddle on your afternoon naps, watching TV or used to keep the chill of on a cold night!

  7. Isabel Martinez says:

    An absolute honor to own this amazing blanket!…I love all things native. I’ll continue to enter in hopes that the moon and the stars will look down on me and send me this treasure!

    • Thinking about my ancestors, Coowusaliskee Davis and Pocahontas, who likely had some sort of wrap to keep them warm on cold Eastern winters. Tracing my roots and now understanding my grandparents better. Wishing I had known what I know now. Wondering how much they knew themselves. Very proud to be a part of a great people.
