In 1923 President Harding and his wife made a dedication of the Old Oregon Trail in Meacham, Oregon in Oregonís Blue Mountain country. The ceremony made Pendleton Woolen Mills' and Indian history. A shawl, modified after the Chief Joseph blanket by Pendleton, was presented as a gift to Mrs. Harding from the Indians. Modeled with a white background and softer colors, the Pendleton Harding blanket was presented to Mrs. Harding by Chief Cap Sumkins of the Cayuse Tribe and Chief Poker Jim of the Umatilla Tribe. Named as the Harding Robe in 1926, this Pendleton blanket is still recognized as one of the leading, vintage Indian blankets manufactured by Pendleton Woolen Mills today.
