Designed by Inspired Natives Project collaborator, Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo), this blanket tells the story of the nearing days of Spring and how the land yearns for moisture so the vibrant blossoms of the wildflowers can rise and bloom. The central motif of the blanket represent the blossoming agv́trṿtsị, and the pattern along the edges represents the moisture blessing the land and water cisterns.
The floral designs featured on this particular blanket are commonly painted on the Olla pots used to carry water, and represent a prayer for beauty and healthy growth for the individuals wrapped in the blanket.
