The story behind...
Inspired by the design of the Pani la shar pawnee scarf: This portrait is a tribute to the Pawnee, a tribe from the Nebraskan and Kansan plains that was forced into exile in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma at the end of the 19th century. Sumptuously dressed, Pani La Shar Pawnee holds a sculpted peace pipe featuring a galloping horse. His calm gaze and proud bearing express the great dignity of his people. Peace pipes and bison heads decorate the corners of this composition, around which run horses and their riders inspired by Karl Bodmer's notebooks. The work of this 19th-century illustrator remains a precious record of Native American culture. Pani La Shar Pawnee, designed in 1984, was the ﬁrst scarf imagined by Kermit Oliver.
