Out of respect for our Native American friends and customers, Pendleton Woolen Mills has changed the name of some of its Native American-inspired blanket patterns. In the future, Pendleton will no longer employ tribal names to title its blanket patterns. When appropriate, we are pleased to give credit to the talented Native American artists who provide us with original designs, or tribes with whom we are working.
American Indian College Fund
The American Indian College Fund raises money for 32 tribal colleges that serve 30,000 students representing 250 native tribes. The fund disburses approximately 5,000 scholarships annually for American Indian students seeking to better their lives through continued education. The tribal colleges play a vital role in the futures of Native American people, our country and, ultimately, people everywhere. For over 100 years, Pendleton Woolen Mills has maintained a mutual respect for our original customers, Native Americans. That is one of the many reasons we are pleased to support this important philanthropic partnership. When you purchase any blanket from our American Indian College Fund Collection, a portion of the proceeds goes to help tribal colleges throughout the country.
