BP: Tribal flag display a 'small, symbolic' step toward improved relations


January 18, 2019

BISMARCK — State and tribal relationships took a small but symbolic step forward Thursday, Jan. 17, during a ceremony to recognize the flags of North Dakota’s five tribal nations that are now on display at the state Capitol.

“It’s important to us because it means that we’re included and we’re thought of when we’re in the Capitol building,” said Alexis Davis, a member of the Turtle Mountain Youth Council. “For a long time, we felt like we had a voice but no one was listening.”
