The seven bison in this blanket pattern are representative of the seven directions, which is an important concept among many Native American tribes. North, South, East, West, Above, Below, and Within. This idea symbolizes wholeness for humanity and the planet earth. The the birth of a white bison occurs approximately once in every 10 million births. In 1933, a white buffalo was born in the wild on Montana’s Flathead Indian Reservation and was called “Big Medicine” to pay homage to his greatness and super natural "gifts". Many Native American tribes consider the return of the White Buffalo the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and the beginning of a new age for mankind and Mother Earth.
