The second blanket design offering from B.YELLOWTAIL is inspired by the Apsáalooke (Crow) name given to Designer Bethany Yellowtail as a young girl: Ammaakeealaachelibaachiilakaacheesh, which translates to “Overcomes through Faith.” This name was given to her by respected Crow elder David Yarlott Sr. It was her family’s wishes that she always be guided, protected, and that prayer be an integral part of her life.
The blanket design “Faith” is an acknowledgment to her name, her family, the people and prayers that have guided her. The hues of pink, blue, and green are specific to the Apsáalooke homelands that she was raised on.
It is her wish that the blanket and it’s design wrap you in love, protection, and be a reminder of the good things in this life and to always have faith when you are feeling challenged.
5% of all blanket sales support the Inspired Natives Grant for emerging arts entrepreneurs.
