Order today to receive Sioux Flag Carrier, 16" x 18" an exclusive and limited SOLD OUT AT PUBLISHER gift with purchase. The flag, or banner staff, was made with eagle feathers. The flag was usually carried by the man who rode near the war leader so that when in a battle the members of the war party could locate the leader to obtain his orders. This flag was most useful in larger engagements. In any small skirmish between war tribes, it was every man for himself.
