Tribal Logo

Chitimacha Tribal Logo

The Tribal Logo was created in 1996 and is comprised of many symbols which represent significant things to the tribe. 

The central component is a cypress tree which represents the Sacred Cypress Tree of the Chitimacha. The sun rising in the east is symbolic of the dawn of a new day. The pipe shown in the center represents peace. The four eagle feathers represent the four directions. Surrounding the center is the bears’ ear/earring basket design. The colors used are of importance to the Chitimacha people, especially the red, black and yellow which were used in our basketry and clothing. The logo is used as the central component of our tribal flag; it is surrounded by a field of blue.
