It is said "Owinja" means quilt in the Native American Lakota dialect.
The Lakota are known for their handmade quilts, particularly star quilts. The star in the upper right hand corner of this piece is from their website logo. Please see their amazing work at http://lakotaquilts.com/thequilters.html
Paraphrasing the quotation, I might say, a person who does not receive quilts or handmade art is an orphan and unloved.
This prayer quilt is made from linen, fabric ink and paper.
