Indians of the United States have traditionally been people without flags, relying upon costume, art and totems to distinguish themselves from one another and from the European dominated culture that is the modern United States.

However, in the last fifty years, that tradition has been changing. Many of the nearly 600 recognized and unrecognized Indian tribes found within the United States are without flags, but an increasing number of tribes and nations have started using this form of symbolism that was previously alien to their culture. In fact, more Indian communities now have flags than don’t.

The adoption of flags by tribes can be seen in some instances as a tool to instill pride in the hearts and minds of people too often forgotten and abused by the federal and state governments with which they were involuntarily saddled.

Another major inducement for Native American tribes, nations, bands,communities, townships, and rancherias to adopt flags has been their increasing involvement in the gaming industry.
