Additional Information

The rare white bison occurs only once in every 10 million births. In 1933, a white buffalo was born in the wild on Montana’s Flathead Indian Reservation and was called “Big Medicine” to reflect his sacred power. Many Native American tribes consider the return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new era for the peoples and Mother Earth. Tradition spoke of the coming of a herd of pure White Buffalo. The seven bison on this blanket represent the seven directions: North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Within. Together they symbolize wholeness for mankind and the earth. Prayer pipes signify mankind's communication with the Creator. In the center of the blanket, within the circle of life, are four hands representing the diverse peoples of the world and a new beginning. Shades of brown and green reflect the natural beauty of Mother Earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This blanket has a great story, great colors, and exceptional quality. I bought this blanket as a gift for my mom as she goes through chemo and other cancer treatments. It was my hope that she would have a nice blanket to bring into her hospital room to brighten things up. She loves buffalos/bisons and when I saw this blanket I knew it was perfect for her. The story behind Big Medicine made it that much better. The blanket is extremely high quality (I would expect nothing less from Pendleton). It has really beautiful earth tone colors and is reversible! The wool is extremely soft and also warm. The only downside is that my mom said she will have to repaint her bedroom to match the blanket! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Mother Gave Me this Blanket ---- See Why My Mother saw "Big Medicine" in a local store in Butte, MT. I love the blanket. The beauty, and the quality are 5 star. I used to go look at Whitey every time I got to the museum in Helena. That was once a month until I was 18 years old. Dad would put us in the car on bid letting day and drive from Butte to Helena. We would go to the museum and he would go do his job. Whitey was so big and sacred. How great to have a remider of him on the couch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Warm Blanket I've always wanted a Pendelton blanket. I received this one as a gift for Christmas and I love it. It is so warm that I do not require any other blankets/sheets to keep me warm. My dog loves this blanket so much he cannot wait to get to bed. The wool is high quality and the design is just fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best Christmas gift ever! I would do it again. This blanket is gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. It was one of the best Christmas gift I've ever given. I highly recommend giving these as gifts, or even keeping one for yourself! They are heirloom quality and the quality actually exceeds the price in this case. Enjoy!
