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 comittment of, say $10, toward the purchase of a flag if the situation is not rectified.

Two years is too long.
