Dyani White Hawk (Sičáŋǧu Lakota, b. 1976) is a visual artist and independent curator with a wide-ranging artistic practice that encompasses painting, printmaking, sculpture, and more recently, video installation. Her works, which center the power of female strength and community, often bring together aspects of Lakota design motifs, gestures, and patterns, which the artist foregrounds to “call out the lack of representation in mainstream educational institutions and literature, break down misconceptions and generalizations, and reinforce the importance of Native voices within contemporary art.” Represented in the Walker’s collection, White Hawk also designs functional items, including jewelry and blankets, as seen in her design for a limited run winter blanket woven in Minnesota at the storied Faribault Woolen Mill, one of the last vertical woolen mills in America.

The Guided wool throw is skillfully manufactured by Faribault Woolen Mill, one of the last vertical woolen mills in America, in collaboration with the American Craft Council on the occasion of The Great Northern 2021.
