When is the last time a Priest Quorum/Venture crew had this discussion (to say nothing of our young women!!)? What about their parents?The last...

Blog 22 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
Storytelling is a vital part of American Indian culture, in which true tales are passed from one generation to the next.
It’s similarly important in the Order of the Arrow, the Scouting honor society that uses American Indian-style traditions and ceremonies.
That’s why the Order of the Arrow Lodge History Initiative is so vital. The project, timed in the run-up to the 100th anniversary of the OA in 2015, aims to preserve each lodge’s unique story to make sure it’s never lost to the erosion of time.
