Part 1 Of A Series: Fundraising Drive Contemplated For Mohegan Flag To Fly At Elders Fort Hill Property

Feather News Drive by the Elder's housing complex on the Mohegan Reservation and you will not see our Mohegan flag flying. Our Mohegan flag has been missing for some two years, according to some estimates.A United States flag is flying there 24 hours and is illuminated at night but not a Mohegan flag.

It has been said that a durable flag would cost about $500 which apparently is the obstacle to buying one.Tribal members, think about the importance of our flag flying on that parcel of our Reservation and consider making a commitment of, say $10, toward the purchase of a flag if the situation is not rectified.

Two years is too long.

EDITORIAL FOOTNOTE: This story was taken from the Feather News.

Is it true, that the Mohegan Tribes flag is not flying at the Fort Hill Elder Housing?

Doesn't the Mohegan Flag fly, along with the American Flag in front of the Mohegan Tribal Government building and the front of the Mohegan Sun Casino?

Isn't Fort Hill Elder Housing Building, the Mohegan Tribal Government Building and the Mohegan Sun Casino on the Mohegan Reservation? So, how come the Mohegan Flag flies at two locations and not at Fort Hill?

Does not flying the Mohegan Flag at Fort Hill Elder Housing show disrespect to the Mohegan Tribe, it's flag and the men and women who have served and continue to serve in the Armed Services?

I don't believe that the Mohegan Tribal Government doesn't have the money to purchase and provide a Mohegan Flag for the Mohegan Tribe at Fort Hill. Should this situation be addressed by the Mohegan Tribal Council? What do you think?
