The Pendleton Big Medicine Blanket in shades of brown and green reflect the natural beauty of Mother Earth highlighting the rare white bison. The story began in 1933 when a white buffalo was born in the wild on Montana’s Flathead Indian Reservation and called “Big Medicine” to reflect his sacred power. Many Native American tribes consider the return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new era for the peoples and Mother Earth. Tradition spoke of the coming of a herd of pure White Buffalo. The seven bison on this blanket represent the seven directions: North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Within. Together they symbolize wholeness for mankind and the earth. Prayer pipes signify mankind's communication with the Creator. In the center of the blanket, within the circle of life, are four hands representing the diverse peoples of the world and a new beginning.
