Another photo of the Navajos banning the swastika.
The document they are signing starts off: “Because the above ornament, which has been a sign of friendship among our forefathers for many centuries has been desecrated recently by another nation of peoples.”
[second paragraph] “Therefore it is resolved that henceforth from this date on and forever more our tribes renounce the use of the emblem commonly known today as the swastika or fylfot on our blankets, baskets, art objects, sandpaintings and clothing.”
“But I’m using it in it’s ORIGINAL meaning!”
My respect and my heart goes out to the Navajo nation for the willing amputation of a symbol that belonged to them. I had no idea.
