The Warrior Up Blanket

A collaborative art piece between Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples and Eighth Generation, the Warrior Up blanket highlights the mighty yellowhammer flicker, a powerful medicine being that links Earth and Sky with each new day. The flicker is black and yellow and carries lessons of knowledge and new beginnings. The bird is centered above seven descending horizontal lines representing seven generations. The outer edges are bordered with two Yurok basket designs, the swallowtail and butterfly. The turquoise blue represents water and the prominence of black signifies wisdom and respect for the Ancestors.

Eighth Generation is the first Native-owned and operated company to produce wool blankets. It was founded in 2008 by Louie Gong (Nooksack/Chinese/French/Scottish), through which he merges traditional Coast Salish art with icons from popular culture and influences from his multiple heritages to make strong statements about identity, culture, collectivity, and prosperity.

A portion of Warrior Up blanket sales will go to land defender and water protector projects, and to the Do:sho:we Fund, which helps sustain the Seventh Generation Fund.

Many minds and thoughts came together as one for the creation of this blanket. Special thanks to the design work of Kateri Masten (Hupa/Yurok/Karuk), and to Chisa Oros (Zuni/Yoeme), who worked closely with Louie Gong on this entire process, as well as to all the Seventh Generation Fund team, for their input and contributions on this dynamic and collaborative piece.
