Native American Flag Ceremony
Posted On: 2021-01-07
Setting: U.S. Flag is posted on stage. Four cubs in Indian costume, if possible, say the following lines, with another boy to act as narrator.
Narrator: We, the first Americans, call your attention to this flag—the symbol of our country’s beginning. Let us go back to a time before our flag and country were formed. We witnessed the early history that led to our becoming an independent nation—how its growth spanned a continent. Hear the words of those who have seen this history.
1st Cub: I am an Algonquin. I stood by the big water and saw the Pilgrim's land.
2nd Cub: I am of the Iroquois tribe. I served for the white man in the battle they call the Revolutionary War.
3rd Cub: My people are called the Sioux. We saw the wagon trains cross the prairie to the land of the sun.
4th Cub: I am of the Navajo tribe. Our young men served as radio operators in the Signal Corps during World War I.
Narrator: When we look at this flag, we think of these things. Will you please stand and join us in the Pledge of Allegiance?
