Astronomy has been practiced by Native Americans since ancient times to predict the arrival of the brightest stars. Pendleton's Star Watchers Wool Blanket honors this age old tradition practiced by the Pawnee people of the Central Plains. The Pawnee people believed the Pole Star was a protective chief who shone highest in the night sky. Pawnee lodges and villages were planned with astronomy in mind, dedicating one corner of each village to the Evening Star. The Star watchers Blanket is woven in hues of blue and gold, depicting the night sky sprinkled with stars.
