Tribal Flag Plaza construction begins at Montana Capitol

At the base of the Montana State Capital, construction began on the Tribal Flag Plaza on July 13. The plaza will showcase flags from Montana’s eight Tribal Nations, next to the United States and Montana flags.

Construction of the project comes a little over a year after Governor Bullock signed the bill, paving the way for the permanent display of the tribal nation’s flags.

Jason Smith, Director of Indian Affairs for the Governor’s Office said the plaza will be a reminder of the contributions American Indians have made at home and overseas, as well as the partnership between the current administration and Montana’s tribal nations.
