For Creator Blanket

Mahota Textiles is the first textile company envisioned and owned by a North American tribe. They create meaningful textiles that elevate the beauty and treasured culture, inspired by their Southeast heritage. Mahota’s textiles tell their stories in expressive imagery and soft, warm woven materials.

Stomp dancing is an important aspect of Southeastern tribal culture. Traditionally, the song is sung by men in a call-and-answer format, with the dance rhythm set by the leader's handheld turtle shell rattle. Women traditionally participate in dance with shakers made from deer toes or Box Turtle shells. Using turtle shells show respect and gratitude to animals for providing many good things. Many tribes believe that the fire at the dance circle center embodies the Creator on earth. The cross represents the four seasons, four directions, and the logs of the Sacred Fire. Stomp dancers move counterclockwise around the fire, with their hearts closest to the fire, while the smoke lifts their prayers to the Creator (Aba' Binni'li' in Chickasaw).” – Mahota
