"Inheritance" Wool Blanket

  • This 100% wool blanket was designed by Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe) in collaboration with Eighth Generation’s Inspired Natives Project.

    This stunning "Inheritance" design pays homage to an Anishinaabe tradition, where the Bear Clan are known as carriers of medicine. Here, the mother carries the medicine while protecting the future generation. The art tells a story of “Inheritance,” as we inherit our gifts both spiritual and physical from our ancestors, we must also consider what we will give.
