Sun, the Creator, shines on the Backbone of the World, the homeland of the Blackfeet Nation. Below, Moon cradles their child, Morning Star, Bringer of Dreams. Between Moon and another symbol for the Star Child shine the Star Beings that make up the Big and Little Dipper constellations. The Lords of the Plains ride below. They wear sacred straight-up eagle feather headdresses. Their masked horses are painted with medicine symbols for protection in travel and battle. Below the riders, a teepee rests among symbols of the rolling hills of the homelands. Black, a power color, encloses the world of the Lords as they preserve their spiritual traditions and way of life. The design is by acclaimed Blackfeet artist Terrance Guardipee.(read more...)
