Flag Day Program: Honoring the American Flag through Native Art

Date: Jun 14, 2021

Where: Online - National Museum of the American Indian

About the Event:

Objects decorated with American flag designs were incorporated into Native art in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today, objects adorned with the flag usually signify that a family member has served in the military.

Watch Emil Her Many Horses (Oglala Lakota), museum curator and historian, as he takes us through objects in the museum's collection that were created to honor the American flag.
