ABOUT THE BLANKET
The ‘Power of Education’ signature wool blanket was designed by Diné College student, Anthony Gary Williams, and was commissioned to Eighth Generation, a Native-owned and operated company based in Seattle, Washington. The company was founded in 2008 by Louie Gong (Nooksack), and is the first Native-owned company to ever produce wool blankets. Diné College is proud of this collaboration because it shows our commitment to creating opportunities for cultural artists, as well as, our strong support for “inspired Natives, not native inspired” entrepreneurship!
The official Diné College logo is placed in the center of the blanket, symbolized by an arrowhead that represents protection. Mountains and corn stalks border the edges and they represent ancestral knowledge and growth stages, carrying lessons of power and prosperity. The prominence of the blue in the design signifies advancement, while the gold represents health and happiness. This is a blanket that anyone can wrap themselves in to feel safe, warm, and at home.
