As soon as I put on my shirt my wife conceived twin sons who later on that day were both offered D1 football scholarships. She smiles a lot more and can’t help but touch me saying the smell freedom is driving her wild.
When I saw this image I knew I had to have it, not because of the imagery but for the fact you do not see these flags anywhere; the Indian Peace Flag. As a student of history I tossed around the portrayal vs significance with this image: On one hand you have an ironic flag; a meaning of 'peaceful intentions' of interacting nations as our young one was branching out and depending on positive interactions, teachings, and cooperation with the mighty Native Americans. However, as we all know, most instances ultimately ended with forceful removal, negated contracts, and deadly encounters that would lead anyone to scoff at the idea of a peace-flag. And I get that. BUT if no one saw this shirt, no one saw this flag, then all the narratives (good and bad) of the Native Americans would never be, and slowly become isolated on history pages. This shirt give me a chance to show a time in our early developing nation and how our interaction with Native Americans were important, sought after, and dependent on becoming the United States, and the narrative of the Native Americans themselves, the good and bad.
Love this t-shirt, it’s different, and a cool symbol in American history. Would love to see more Indian themed items like this. Keep up the good work.
Excellent quality. Fits well. Looks good. Husband loved it. Two big thumbs up!
