My flag is symbolic of my Native American culture. In the center I drew a Narragansett Seal with an Indian Chief in the center. It is symbolic of all the chiefs who reigned over the nation many years ago. The ribbon beneath it reads, “Hope” which is the state motto of Rhode Island. The boat in the water symbolizes how I am from Rhode Island, “the Ocean State”. I drew a Native American Indian on a boat with the American flag behind him, to represent how my people were here before Christopher Columbus. The colors I used are symbolic to my Native American heritage. They represent earth, life and land which are the things Native Americans cherish most.
