Eagle Staff Pony

On July 4, 1960, the United States 50 star Flag became the official symbol a newly established country by executive order of President Eisenhower.

The Bald Eagle is a symbol that has been revered by the Indigenous tribes for hundreds of years and is now a symbol of the United States.  “The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.”

Today, many tribal nations have designed and adopted cloth flags to represent their nations, although the eagle staff is the symbol that is recognized and unifies all indigenous nations today.
