// Not a na(sa)zi flag//
Found outside the Museum for Contemporary Native Art in Santa Fe, NM.
A sorta clever send up of the US flag with patterns from native weavings, BUT WAIT A MINUTE ARE THOSE WHAT I THINK THEY ARE?
Yup. Closer inspection yields that those little yellow blobs in the lower canton are, indeed, swastikas. I guess I should have known that the swastika - pretty common in pre-nazi folk art the world over (so simple, yet so snazzy!)- would have been used in the americas. Turns out that it represents the ‘four arms of destiny’ to the Hopi.
What do you think of the swasts and zags?
