Rodeo Sisters Blanket by Pendleton
A vibrant work of art designed by the late artist Apolonia Susana Santos. Four Native American women draped in blankets stand in line at sunset, each adorned with abalone and bells. Atop their heads are Western-style hats; on their feet they wear moccasins and tooled boots. This USA-made blanket is presented in a robe (twin) size—perfect as a wall hanging or draped over a sofa. Reverses for two dramatically different looks. Part of our Legendary Collection, this design honors stories and symbols of Native American cultures. Each year a new collector’s blanket is added to the series.

About the artist: Susana Santos (1954-2006) was a painter, serigrapher, sculptor, writer and activist of Tygh/Yakima ancestry. Her use of rich colors, textures and natural materials created vibrant landscapes that illuminated historic and contemporary Indigenous life. Susana’s art shows, writings, public speaking and theater-style marches encouraged Native youth to always "Remember who you are."
