Emulating the breathtaking colors of the Montana skies, this stunning wool blanket was designed by Inspired Natives Project Collaborator, John Pepion (Blackfeet), and pays tribute to the vibrant Plains Indian Horse culture.
The first horse that came to the Blackfeet (Piikani) became known as the Elk Dog, revolutionizing the way the Piikani were able to hunt and becoming an integral part of everyday life on the Plains. Here, John has painted the horses as they were sometimes painted before going on a hunt, raid, or into battle - with circles above their eyes to make them see farther and lightning on their bodies to make them run faster.
John says, "Being a collaborator with the Inspired Natives Project means that I get to bring light to Plains Indian culture. And being a member of the Piikani band of the Blackfoot Confederacy, it was important to me to represent the horse on my first wool blanket. It's still such a major part of our lives on the Plains today; the Plains Indian horse culture is alive and well."
5% of all blanket sales support the Inspired Natives Grant for emerging arts entrepreneurs.
