Sac & Fox of Iowa - Iowa

The Sac, or Sauk, an Algonquin word meaning "yellow earth people" and the Fox, or Mesquaki, meaning "red earth people" originated in what is now Illinois and Wisconsin (ENAT, 210-212). Today the two Tribes, which have been close allies and friends since joining in 1734 to repulse attacks from an alliance of the Ojibwe and the French (ENAT, 86-87), occupy three distinct reservations in Iowa, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa have a reservation in central Iowa known as the Mesquaki Indian Settlement.

In 1934 the Sac and Fox of Missouri organized as a federally recognized Tribe under the Indian Reorganization Act. The reservation had a resident population of 217 in 2000. The tribal office is located in Reserve, KS, as is the Tribal Museum and Research Center. The tribe owns and operates the Sac and Fox Casino in Powhattan, KS.

The nation changed the tribal seal recently and adopted the flag. I made an image of the flag according to the photograph of the actual flag. It can be seen at http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1434315157672&set=a.1434080391803.51468.1826737355&theater.
