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 A KEEPER It's green, it's got white buffalo on it, it connects to Montana History -- what's not to love? I'll keep this blanket forever! I wish Pendleton would add some accessory items in this same green/white/buffalo design. I've been wanting this blanket for years, finally treated myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Blanket I bought this blanket as a gift to my amazing nephew who just graduated with a Doctorate in Pharmacology. I found this blanket online and had to get it as a gift to our own Medicine Man. The blanket arrived and when we opened it, we were stunned at how beautiful it was...such a perfect gift for him. Pendleton never disappoints...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never thought I could love a blanket so much I bought this blanket about a month ago, and have spent time with it every since I got it. I never thought I would have a love affair with a blanket! I wear it on my deck having tea, take naps with it, lay it on top of my bedding at night and sleep under it, walk to the bathroom wrapped in it in the middle of the night :) it’s absokutely gorgeous, feels great, looks great. I got my name (Coyote) embroidered on it, which I love too. It’s probably my favorite purchase ever of anything. It’s certainly not cheap, but for me I know it’s going to get a lot of use and bring me joy for many days to come.
