Tribal flag-raising ceremony held at DU

On April 2, the University of Denver honored and recognized the sovereign political status of the Northern Cheyenne, Northern Arapaho and Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho Nations. Their tribal flags were raised in a ceremony on the Driscoll Bridge and will be displayed on campus now and in the future alongside the flags of the United States, the state of Colorado and the University of Denver. Representatives from each of the tribes joined Chancellor Rebecca Chopp, Provost Gregg Kvistad and members of the DU community at the ceremony. The event was organized by Dr. Billy J. Stratton, associate professor of English and Literary Arts.
