Description 

The Turtle Blanket is a re-coloration of an early 1900s Pendleton design. It pays tribute to the Iroquois Confederacy, one of the oldest participatory democracies on earth, consisting of the Oneida, Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga (and later the Tuscarora) Nations. The Turtle design was inspired by Iroquois, primarily Mohawk, legend. Long ago, the earth was covered with deep water and there were no people. According to stories, the birds saw Skywoman fall from the sky. As she fell, she grabbed the roots of a tree from heaven. The birds spread their wings together to save her. Only the Turtle was strong enough to hold her, so they placed her on the turtle’s back. There she planted the root; and as her garden grew, Turtle grew in size first becoming a large island, then finally North America, known as Turtle Island. This blanket is an example of centerpoint design in which three major design elements fall in a row down the center of the blanket. Unnapped. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Woven in our Northwest mills. 64" x 80".
