The Flag in American Indian Art


  • Native American Art depicting the American flag
  • Features the work of more than two dozen different peoples
  • Softcover, 120 pages, over 120 full color photographs


This volume illustrates the work of more than two dozen different peoples, from the Iroquois of the Northeast to the Makah of Neah Bay at the entrance to the Puget Sound. Clothing, containers, children’s objects, items made for trade or sale, and warriors’ accouterments include depictions of the American flag that vary from close facsimiles to near abstractions. Essays discuss how since the 1800s the flag has touched several layers of many different native cultures as these people struggled to adapt to or accommodate the overriding culture of the United States.
