The Pendleton Cheyenne Eagle blanket depicts the Cheyenne story of how a warrior freed an eagle from the antlers of an elk. For helping to free him, the eagle gave the man a gift - a beautiful stallion covered with spots just like the eagle's feathers. Designed exclusively for the American Indian College Fund by Northern Cheyenne Artist Ben Nighthorse Campbell, this truly artistic blanket includes a special hangtag that tells the story of the Eagle, the Elk, and the Warrior.
Unnapped Blanket: The fibers of an unnapped blanket have not been pilled which produces a thinner and denser feeling blanket. Many of the old Pendleton blankets were unnapped and most new designs are being made this way.
