We show that each algebraic representation of a matroid M in positive characteristic determines a matroid valuation of M , which we have named the {\em Lindström valuation}. If this valuation is trivial, then a linear representation of M in characteristic p can be derived from the algebraic representation. Thus, so-called rigid matroids, which only admit trivial valuations, are algebraic in positive characteristic p if and only if they are linear in characteristic p. To construct the Lindström valuation, we introduce new matroid representations called flocks, and show that each algebraic representation of a matroid induces flock representations.
