Nike N7 Generations Blanket by Pendleton

SKU: ZE777-53804

Understand the richness of Native American culture with our USA-made Nike N7 Generations Blanket by Pendleton.

Designed by Diné artist Tracie Jackson, this wool blanket tells the story of the past, present, and future of Native peoples.

The N7 motif at the center embodies the influence of each individual (represented by the diamond) on the past and future three generations (depicted by arrows). A storm pattern pays tribute to cultural heritage, while steps symbolize the journey to overcoming obstacles. 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.
