This Bear Dance flag is rectangular and made from tightly woven, machine made cotton fabric. It has been painted with poster paint and water colors. The design consists of three brown bears on their hind legs, one black bear on all fours, one man with long black hair and a blue loincloth, trees and mountains in the background and the rest of the flag is blank.
Per the Accession file, the flag seems to have been collections for a period of time, placed on loan to the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose and accessioned in 1956. Images shot by Thomas McKee show such flags being placed on a pole at the entrance of corrals used for Bear Dance. The Activity records lists and donor and accession date of 1961.
