These Pendleton blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
Designed early in the 1920s, the Chief Joseph design continues to be one of Pendleton’s most popular blankets.It commemorates the heroism of one of the Northwest’s greatest Nez Perce warriors, Chief Joseph. His Nez Perce name was “Hin-mahtoo-yah-lat-kert”, which means Thunder Rolling Down Hill.
The Nez Perce wereknown for their skills as warriors, breeding of Appaloosa horses, support and guidance for the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery, and their peace efforts with the US Government.The Chief Joseph blanket is the oldest on-going blanket produced by Pendleton Woolen Mills. Its design is balanced with arrowheads symbolizing bravery and pointing in all directions of Mother Earth.
