Tribal flags of Native American nations hang in the halls at The Indian Museum of North America at Crazy Horse Memorial.
Growing Crazy Horse Memorial Flag Collection Illustrates Tribal Individuality and Diversity
Crazy Horse Memorial began its collection of tribal flags in 1982. The first tribal nation flag was presented to Ruth Ziolkowski by elders of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, following the death of Korczak. The colorful flags in the collection shown on this page have been donated by tribes or tribal members, and many have been presented at tribal sites.

Receiving a tribal flag is one of the highest honors bestowed by Native Americans. As of October 2008, the Crazy Horse collection proudly features over 100 flags.

The beautiful and distinctive flags are displayed throughout the Crazy Horse complex as another means of increasing public awareness of the wide diversity and individuality of Native American heritage, culture and tribes.

The collection is not complete, and donations are welcomed from tribes not yet represented. As it continues to grow, the collection plays a significant role, reminding visitors that the Memorial represents all tribes, each of which is distinctive.
