Sky Woman Muchacho Blanket
Sky Woman is from an original painting by Native American watercolor artist Dawn Dark Mountain, of the Oneida tribe. She is a member of the turtle clan, and the turtle image appears in all of her paintings. The Iroquois say that long ago the sky people lived among the clouds. Sky Woman, who was with child, fell into the darkness of our world. As she fell, trying to hold on, she brought with her plants, roots and bits of earth. At last, birds helped her to land on the back of The Great Turtle in the water. Sea animals dived to find the sacred earth that fell with Sky Woman. Finally Muskrat spread some of the earth on Turtles back where it grew until it became the Earth. Then Turtle climbed into the sky and gathered lightning for the sun and the moon, and the world was no longer dark.32" x 44"
