In honor and celebration of Jackson Sundown, Nez Perce (1863 – December 18, 1923), born Waaya-Tonah-Toesits-Kahn (meaning Blanket of the Sun).

 

Jackson Sundown was a world-famous rodeo rider and competed for the last time in 1916. His final ride is an event of great mythology to this day. It is told that Sundown drew a very fierce horse named Angel and that the horse bucked so furiously that Sundown removed his cowboy hat and fanned the horse to get it to cool off, at which time he and the horse merged into one being. Sundown won the all-around event and became immortalized as a hero. 

 

Kiowa Dougherty (Kiowa), compiled this design in tribute to Jackson Sundown. In the design, you can see silhouettes of Jackson's famous ride, as well as his portrait. The field in the scarf is an old-style paisley design by Kiowa, with a modern and Native twist.
