Pendleton Muchacho Blanket - Chief's Road
Our Pendleton muchacho blankets are made especially for babies. They're our softest and cuddliest wool, which makes them perfect for your child. These are a favourite for gifting, and can also be used on a sofa or a bed.
Designed by Cree artist Jesse Henderson, this blanket depicts the Milky Way, or “Chief’s Road.” Within the deep blue middle section of the blanket the North Star and the constellations of the Big Dipper and Orion are highlighted. The Cree believe that the Big Dipper in the North represents their Father, and Orion in the south represents their Mother. The lodges below the sky represent Mother Earth and everything inside signifies the Creator’s children. The border of bear and moose tracks represents two highly esteemed animals.
