  • UND not involved in tribal flag display

    Grand Forks, North Dakota (AP)

    A spokesman for the University of North Dakota says the university is not involved with the planned display of tribal flags in Ralph Engelstad Arena.

    Peter Johnson says the arena on the UND campus is operated by an independent organization.

    The arena is planning to display tribal flags during pregame ceremonies for a UND men’s hockey exhibition game, to honor the people and veterans of the Spirit Lake and Standing Rock reservations. It’s offering transportation for tribal elders and veterans.
