Navajo saddle blankets are among the most underappreciated art forms in the American Southwest, the Cinderella of Navajo textiles. Saddle blankets have played a key role in Navajo life both as utilitarian objects and as a force in the economic sustainability of modern Navajo life. They represent a material link between Navajo weavers and traders. This modest textile has found a context in the cattle industry, inside rural cabins, on the floors of eastern bungalows, on the walls of art museums, and even on horseback. It has served countless cultural and utilitarian demands placed on it over the last century and a half, with no sunset in sight.

With a blend of description and theory, this classic case study by James F. Downs (1923–1999) focuses on the pastoral aspects of Nez Ch’ii society and culture. The tribe still holds to a pastoral herding ecology that has characterized some of the Navajo for at least 250 years. Downs outlines the important themes of the culture (including the importance of females, the inviolability of the individual, the prestige of age, and the reciprocity principle), and discusses, in detail, the relationships between the Nez Ch’ii families and their sheep herds as well as their relationship to the dominant culture surrounding them.

Sacking Out THE SADDLE BLANKET I use Navajo-type blankets, made of soft wool or cotton, for saddle cloths on my horses. These are not the real thing, handwoven by the Navajo Indians, but rather that type of blanket.
