Amazing information and great photo. I love to learn something new and this is most interesting to me due to the spirituality of the theme.

@rongood replied: Hi all,... Prayer Flags are very well document when it comes to the Tibetan Buddhist culture, but very little information is available on the North American native peoples use of the prayer flag. I have seen the use of these flags in and around this area going back some 40 years. The photo here is not on a reserve land but is still a sacred area for the local peoples , the Stoney Tribe, known as the original people of the mountains. This photo is from an area west of the Big Horn reserve, west of Rocky Mountain House Alberta.

This is so interesting, never heard of this before for the Indigenous People, but I think there is a similar practice in Tibet...
very nicely captured too!

Found in an aspen forest in the Alberta Rocky Mountains.

These are called prayer Flags, they are placed in the trees here by native peoples and left to disintegrate naturally.
