The Children of the Middle Waters saddle blanket is a 68” X 39” wool saddle blanket manufactured by Pendleton Blankets and designed specifically for Osage Foundation by Osages Chad Renfro and Addie Roanhorse. It is the second version of this particular ONF design. The original Children of the Middle Waters limited edition blanket sold out and that version will not be manufactured again. Each blanket includes a custom ONF leather tag.

Children of the Middle Waters represents working together. It represents the colors of Earth (reds) and Sky (blues). These colors are woven into the graphic representations of the patterns of Osage Finger Weaving and Ribbon Work, the small white diamonds representing the Moon (Mother). In the dark blue lines running like a river of wisdom through the MIDDLE of these colors and cultural designs is the Osage Orthography or Language in the color gold to represent the Sun (Father). These words or phases are meant to inspire and remind us of what is important. They include Children of the Middle Waters, Do Your Best, Living The Life God Gave Us, Getting Along with One Another (Harmony), Everything Runs Smoothly and last but not least Give Thanks or Thank You.
