Amerindian flag, but of which Amerindians? All-American? Although it is not clear from the text, I think this is Guyana Amerindians' Flag, having in mind the shape of the coat of arms on the flag, but.

The colours seems to be the ones of the flag of the short lived republic of Rupununi (1969). The arms are from the Rupununi rebel movement, renamed later Pan-Tribal Confederacy of Amerindian Tribal Nations. I assume that the P-TCATN adopted the republic flag

According to this site, this is the "flag of the Eagle Clan Lokono-Arawaks
(Bariria Korobahado Lokono) and of the Pan-Tribal Confederacy". The flag was
designed by Damon Gerard Corrie.
The "Pan-Tribal Confederacy of Indigenous Tribal Nations" describes itself a
"the only multi-racial worldwide indigenous confederacy in existence".
The Lokono-Arawaks are Arawak Amerindians living in Guyana (15,000), Suriname (2,000) and French Guiana (400). At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culpepper_Island, one can read : "On 12 March 2006 members of the region's indigenous Lokono-Arawak and Karifuna-Carib tribes have attempted to make a claim on Culpepper Island to be their own. They stated that they were descendants of Princess Marian, daughter of the last Hereditary Lokono-Arawak Chief Amorotahe Haubariria (Flying Harpy Eagle) of the Eagle Clan Lokono-Arawaks who is buried in the Westbury Cemetery in Barbados" (see too : http://www.pantribalconfederacy.com/confederacy/reclamation/)
