Indigenous Unity Foundation
The Indigenous Unity Foundation was established to support the ideals of solidarity, sovereignty and unity among the Indigenous Peoples of the World behind the concept of a single flag that integrates these purposes that can be flown over any Indigenous nation. In 2023, the flag is now 10 years old and has been raised in over 1,000 locations to symbolize the presence of Indigenous Peoples that understand their rights to self-governance and self-determination as well as the preservation of our free, prior and informed consent as autonomous peoples.
The story behind the development of the Indigenous Unity Foundation started as a simple base for the operation of the flag under the umbrella of Globcal International and then in 2021 under the Ecology Crossroads Cooperative Foundation the Indigenous Flag Program was adapted to conform with the articles of incorporation and purposes of the organization.
