Bring the beauty of the mountains home with our Mountain Dreams Pillow by Piikani (Blackfeet) artist and Inspired Natives® Collaborator John Isaiah Pepion.
“For Blackfoot People, we believe our power comes from the mountains,” shares John. “They're the source of everything: berries and roots, healing medicines, natural earth pigments which we use in our paints, buffalo, deer, and other animals. We also travel to the mountains for vision quests, and as places to go to get answers or to clear your mind.”
The classic “stair-step” design of the mountains seen here are traditionally found in Blackfoot beadwork and in parfleche containers. John is famous for adapting traditional Blackfeet designs to fit modern aesthetics and stories, blending the traditional and contemporary in new ways. The design of this pillow is "chain-stitched," making for gorgeous, up-close details and a silky yet raised texture.
