      Not sure what you are saying/asking. Pendleton is a woolen mill and textile manufacturer headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and Beaver State is one of their brands, reserved for textiles they produce that feature patterns with a Native American theme. The name Pendleton, itself, is for the town in eastern Oregon where the company had its first mill.

      The factory has been selling blankets with designs "inspired by" patterns from, or which appeal to, Native American tribes for over 100 years, and there have been three different Beaver State labels. This one has been used since 1972.

      But that is the only "Indian" connection. The blankets are widely collected, purchased, and used by non-Native Americans, as well as by tribal members, and are considered "Indian Trade Blankets," rather than "Indian" blankets, since they are not made by Native American Indians.
