What Our Logo Means

The symbol illustrates:

  • Three ascending ravens, each representing one of the Three Affiliated Tribes, they are separate, yet share a common purpose – to build a life together on the Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish Reservation.
  • The logo speaks of both the future and the past; the traditional dwellings of old and the new modern buildings of today.
  • The Missouri River (now Lake Sakakawea) has always flowed in the lives of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara people, strengthening the values, language and traditions.
