For the Blackfeet, the butterfly is the bringer of good dreams. You will often find butterflies on painted tipis and in the beadwork of Blackfeet people.
Blackfeet artist and Inspired Natives™ Collaborator John Isaiah Pepion drew inspiration from the butterfly designs that flit across the rawhide parfleche designs of the Plains Indians. Traditional parfleche are beautifully embellished rawhide containers, decorated by painting, incising, or both. This unique throw blanket is a beautiful modern interpretation of these traditional designs, wrapping the wearer in a wish for good dreams and untroubled sleep.
