This beautiful blanket pays tribute to the legendary Jim Thorpe (Sac and Fox), a Native icon famous for winning Olympic gold in the decathlon and pentathlon, before going on to excel in professional baseball and football. Jim Thorpe also became the NFL's first president, and is widely considered one of the best athletes to ever live.
In 2018, Eighth Generation officially licensed the Jim Thorpe name and likeness. The blanket was designed by Eighth Generation in collaboration with Sac and Fox traditional ribbon artist, Ruth Garvin.
