The Band

Siwanoy Nation is unrecognized native tribe, organized as The Tribal Council of Siwanoy Nation. The tribe is based in Long Island, NY.

We are a tribe of Native Americans, historically indigenous to the coastal areas of Long Island Sound in modern-day New York and Connecticut.

The Flag

The red, yellow, white and black are taken from the native medicine wheel which was also used as a compass and applied to all aspects of indigenous life. It was extensively used among northeast woodlands tribes. The red quadrant of the wheel represented the wolf in some interpretations, and the wheel is pointed toward the northeast.
The “enchanted wolf” with raised paw was the totem of the Wappinger Confederacy, so included is the silhouette of a wolf and star, with the wolf holding a scepter representing the royal heritage of the Siwanoys, and with the initials of Ann Hook in purple, also representing our royal heritage.
The Tribal Council adopted the flag on 09.01.2021
