The Meaning Behind The Colors

tribal flag
Welcome to my blog. The Tribe is especially proud of its flag. Our colors are Yellow, Orange, Red and Brown. Yellow represents the Sun, Orange represents the Moon, Red represents Blood / Life, Brown represents Ground / Earth.

Besides being on display at the Tribal Headquarters, our flag is displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, the San Joaquin Historical Society and Museum in San Joaquin County California.

Our tribal flag is also displayed at special events at the California State Capitol in Sacramento California, and is on display at the Department of the Interior – Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington DC.
