"Powerful" is the operative word here. (For those who do not know, the upside-down American flag is the International sign of distress. You will see that symbol often in matters of human rights violations against Indigenous Americans.) Roberta Blackgoat is the one in the left foreground holding her famous–and prophetic–sign.
