Although they study a variety

of subjects to achieve their edu-

cational goals, many tribal col-

lege students have something in

common—unique artistic abil-

ity.

The American Indian College

Fund is highlighting student

designs in its exclusive collec-

tion of blankets produced by

Pendleton Woolen Mills.

Samson Frank, a student in

Liberal Arts/Health Sciences at

the Southwestern Polytechnic

Institute created

Grandeur.

Frank’s design was influenced

by the traditional Navajo rugs

woven by his grandmother.

The blanket, measuring 66” x

40”, features a traditional, yet

unique depiction of the eagle.

The eagle is a symbol of

strength and power, and is a

messenger to the heavens in

Navajo culture.

Samson Frank plans to earn a

degree in health sciences and go

into the medical field. But he

loves his art, especially working

with charcoal and ink. He also

does sculpture, multi-media art

and silk screens his own t-shirt

designs.

Rive Trading Post features

Grandeur,

as well as many other

fine Pendleton blankets that

have been created especially for

the American Indian College

Fund.
