Daughters Of The Earth Blanket
"Ah-Day" means "special" in Kiowa, and this beautiful, intricate blanket is surely an unsurpassed gift for a special child. It is produced exclusively for the American Indian College Fund by Pendleton Woolen Mills, and designed by artist Virginia Stroud, an acclaimed contemporary Native American artist. This blanket was inspired by a Plains Indian tradition according to which new parents place their childs remaining navel cord inside an amulet shaped like a sand lizard. The amulets represent the sand lizard's quick movements that will guard the spirit of the child and ensure a long, protected life. Felt binding. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 32" x 44".
