Arrowmen Divided into Tribes to Promote Bonding and Fellowship
All Indian Summer participants have been divided into four nations--Plateau, Plains, Northern Woodlands, and Southern Woodlands--each with three
tribes consisting of several clans. Each clan groups participants together of
roughly the same age.
All information to be distributed at Indian Summer
will be given during the clan meetings. At the first
clan meeting, a clan leader will be chosen for the
following day. Participation in these clan meetings is strongly encouraged; if
every meeting is attended, a special participation pin is given that attaches to
the Indian Summer Participation Patch.
The clan leader will help their clan make coup sticks,
which will represent their clan. Materials will be given
to Arrowmen to place on their coup sticks; however, Arrowmen are encouraged to
add unique items to their coup stick to make it represent each member in their clan.
At the closing gathering, the best fifteen coup sticks
will be presented by a member of each winning clan.
This activity is provided to Indian Summer participants by the Activities and Recreation Committee.
