Like the piñon tree, members of the Navajo Nation gather resources to survive an increasingly precarious water supply. Diné artist Emma Robbins has gathered symbols of endurance for this design; a sáanii (maternal grandmother) scarf crossed by traditional sash belts used in ceremonies and childbirth. At the center, a young woman’s bracelet of silver is set with turquoise, a stone formed by rare rains flowing through arid layers of rock. A portion of blanket sales will support DigDeep’s Navajo Water Project.
Pendleton is honored to unveil a new blanket designed by artist Emma Robbins. A portion of the sales from this blanket will go to the DigDeep Navajo Water Project, a nonprofit that works to bring clean running water to the one in three Navajo families without it.
