A TRADITION OF BELIEF AND RESPECT
The Pendleton Indian Legend started with its very first customers, the Native Americans. Pendleton Woolen Mills began this rich heritage in the early 1900's with the ever appealing Indian robes and shawls. For many years these blankets have served as a standard of value and tradition of Indian belief and respect.
This growing respect for native American robes and shawls has prompted Pendleton to present a new family of blankets. Called the Legendary Blankets, they commemorate the Native American and portray their beliefs and tradition.
Because Pendleton and the Native Americans share a brotherhood of tradition, each blanket has been designed with specific colors and patterns to romantically demonstrate a historical or commemorative milestone.
The "Turtle" design is in recognition of the Iroquois Confederacy. Inspired by the Oneida, Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onadaga and Tuscarora Nations, the Turtle design represents the Iroquois legend that the world was created on the shell of the Great Turtle.
The Turtle was the only one with enough strength to support the earth on it's back says the legend. And the earth grew larger until it became the whole world.
