The intricate, geometric design is created with arrow images, symbols common among Native American tribes. A bundle of five arrows represented the five founding tribes of the Iroquois League. To the Navajo, flint is a sacred stone and arrowheads are said to resemble the tips of lightning bolts thrown by Thunder. Sioux lore tells of Unktomi Tanka (a big spider) who spent his days making flint arrows for the tribe. A ticking sound in the grass indicates that a spider is busy making arrowheads. A Shasta legend relates how the people got arrowheads back in the days when arrowheads were made of pine bark instead of obsidian. Ground Squirrel tricked the arrowheads away from Obsidian Old Man and the sharp new arrows made hunting better. It's no surprise that arrowheads often signified alertness. Arrowheads are often used in designs to signify protection.

During the turn of the 20th Century the Pendleton Blanket legend was born at a woolen mill in Pendleton, Oregon that began producing striking wool blankets with vivid colors and authentic Native American Indian designs for the Umatilla and Cayuse Indian tribes in the Northwest.  The combination of beauty, quality, durability and the superior warmth of the wool blankets make them popular for a wide range of outdoor activities and has earned Pendleton a reputation for superb craftsmanship and quality which continues to be a hallmark of the Pendleton Blanket.
