Arrow Of Light, Native American Style



PERSONNEL
Akela (Cubmaster), Webelos den leader, light switch operator, tom-tom beater, Arrow of Light Award candidates and their parents.

EQUIPMENT
Large symbol of the Arrow of Light Award made from 1-1/4" dowel painted gold and dusted with glitter; a simple candle board containing a blue, a white, and a yellow candle; Indian headdress and blanket for Akela; tom-tom; Arrow of Light Awards and certificates; safety pins.

ARRANGEMENT
The pack sits in a semicircle, Indian - style. Parents sit behind their sons. The Arrow of Light Award symbol is mounted as a background to the candle board.

Webelos Den Leader: Tonight we honor those Webelos Scouts who have completed the requirements for the Arrow of Light Award, the highest rank in Cub Scouting.

Will the following Webelos Scouts come forward with their parents. (Announces Arrow of Light candidates, then lights the blue candle, as the room lights are dimmed or turned off. The tom-tom beats offstage. Akela, the Cubmaster, appears in Indian costume and stands partly facing the pack and the Arrow of Light candidates.)

Akela: Many moons ago these braves joined the Webelos tribe to enjoy the fun and advancement activities of the Cub Scout trail. To become a Webelos Scout each boy had to fulfill certain requirements. You Cub Scouts have learned to follow Akela, which means the leadership of your Cubmaster, parents, teachers, Webelos den leader, or others who are striving to help you become good citizens. Now you have earned the Arrow of Light Award. All these people have guided you along the Scouting trail. (Points to the candles.)

The blue candle represents your experiences as Cub Scouts. The white one reveals a bright new trail ahead filled with many thrilling Boy Scout experiences. The yellow candle is to remind you that a little work, along with good hearty fun, can produce rich rewards.

I am pleased to present this Arrow of Light Award to you with the help of your parents. (Presents awards and certificates to the parents. The Webelos den leader hands them a safety pin, which one parent uses to pin the award to the left pocket flap of the boy's shirt.)

Good luck as you enter Boy Scouting. Keep advancing, and remember that a good Scout makes a good citizen.
