These Pendleton Blanket Tsi Mayoh blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
Tsi Mayoh is one of four sacred hills that rise above the Chimayo valley. These hills mark the four cardinal directions. In the ancient mythology of New Mexico’s Tewa people, supernatural beings called the War Twins, or Tewa Towaesendo, acted as protectors to the Tewa. They found the people in a dark, cold underworld, and led them through a labyrinth of caves that lie beneath Tsi Mayoh and its neighboring hills, until the Tewa finally reached the land of the sun. Their mighty guides, the War Twins, live among the high crests of Tsi Mayoh to this day.
