On November 9, 1969, Native Americans occupied Alcatraz. It was at first envisioned as a brief event to draw attention to the plight of Native Americans, but soon there were demands for the deed to the island, and plans for an Indian university, cultural center and museum among the cell blocks. The original one hundred or so occupiers soon left, to be replaced by other Indians from across the country.
This design is based on the original flag that flew over Alcatraz during this period. The Utopia U.S.A. flag design was produced as a prototype for Lulie Nall, a Penobscot Native American and activist.
