Pendleton blanket featuring the Cherokee Nation seven pointed star with the words "Cherokee Nation" and "One Fire" presented in both Cherokee and English. Design created by Cherokee National Treasure Dan Mink.
Central to the Pendleton design is a seven-pointed star, reflecting the seven clans of the Cherokee people. Mink also chose a starburst pattern to represent the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes originating from one fire. The color tan represents buckskin, red, black and yellow are artistic colors found in Cherokee artifacts and gold comes from the CN seal. The border of the blanket is a Southeastern motif, and basket weaving was the inspiration for the inner corners.
