Description

The Home Flight blanket is inspired by traditional basket designs and seasonal changes. The double-sided print highlights the return patterns of ducks working together to navigate a long journey. The blankets remind us of the beauty found in nature and mixes that with UO’s traditional green and yellow.

When you purchase the Home Flight Blanket, 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Many Nations Longhouse programming and the Native Duck Nation Alumni Network.

The Home Flight blankets are a collaboration between the UO Alumni Association, The UO Many Nations Longhouse, and the Duck Store. They were designed by Kale'a Calica-Younker (Coquille/Coos/Warm Springs/Yakama) who is an art student at the University of Oregon, and her father Shirod Younker (Coquille/Miluk Coos/Umpqua).
