Thursday, November 6, 2003

The National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is selling a limited-edition Pendleton to commemorate the museum's new site in Washington, D.C.

Truman Lowe, a curator at the museum and a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, created the blanket as a tribute to his mother. It features a style called ribbon applique.

The museum on the National Mall is set to open in September 2004.
