Pendleton Nike N7 Seven Generations Blanket
This USA-made wool blanket, designed by Diné artist Tracie Jackson, illustrates the past, present and future of Native peoples. The central N7 motif represents the impact of each person (the diamond) on the three generations before and after (arrows). A storm pattern honors heritage, while steps show the path to overcoming challenges. The rich colors were inspired by traditional dyes, and reflect the beauty of the southwestern landscape.
The 7 Generations Blanket is created in partnership with Nike's N7 Fund, a trust whose mission is to bring sports to Native American and Aboriginal communities in the US and Canada.
A portion of the proceeds from the 7 Generations Blanket sales will go to the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges. Your purchase helps support their honorable mission.

She is a fourth generation artisan, encouraged by her family to study the traditional art forms of her tribe.
