ya im here too. I'm the lodge chief of Shunkah Mahneetu in the grand teton council. we got south eastern idaho and a little bit of wyoming.
West Is Best!!!
And if you have any suggestions on how to make my lodge better i wanna hear them. i just got elected 3 weeks ago when the lodge chief was elected section chief. and i want to add some new programs to make the lodge better. and any neat ways to retain membership would be good too. the lodge is small right now and it doesnt need to be. i want to fix that. anything you could say to help me would be greatly appreciated.
If you check out my "e-name", you will see that my OA career is related to Cahuilla...all the way back to the 50's. In that distant era I was a member of Wisumahi Lodge #478, one of the lodges that merged to form Cahuilla.
To boot, I am now a member of Ut In Selica!
NOAC 2006 is on the horizon and I hope all you Westerners are planning to be there. Last year Wiatava had a huge contingent that was very impressive. I can still see all those "yellow gearheads" lining up for the Founders' Day Show: it seemed like there were thousands!
And let me put in a word for my specialty, American Indian Activities. NOAC always had a great program in that area AND it is the most well-attended of all the NOAC areas. If you want to see some of the very best outfits in the OA, be sure to come to the "Gathering of Nations Powwow": that is where the AIA Staff shows off its stuff. Then be certain to come to the dance competitions where you will see the very best outfits and dancing that the OA youth has to offer. I am certain you will be impressed.
I am the new advisor for chapter 2 in Awaxaawe' Awachia. I have only been in for a few short months but none the less we have taken the bull by the horns. We have proved that the OA still is around and that it is needed NOW more than ever in our district. We have gone from 4 members (end of dec-05) to 21. This past weekend we had 4 canidates go through ordeal and One earn his brotherhood. The chapter is on the Up and UP!
