A New OA Handbook
The handbook, revised every two years, is provided as a guide to members on the organization’s history, events and resources. This 108-page handbook is distributed to everyone attending NOAC or is available to purchase from National Boy Scout Supply Division.
The handbook explains the ideals of the Order in depth, along with a brief history. It has sections on leadership in your chapter, lodge and section, and outlines who does what and why.
The handbook is not just for youth, it also has sections on adult leadership and roles and the importance of the American Indian in the organization. An English to Lenni Lenape dictionary also is included as one of the many reference items in the publication.
Though the cover of the Revised 2000 Edition looks the same, there are a few important changes and the new handbook has a new part number: 34996B. Changes in this edition include an updated officer and conference listing, as well as information about the National Leadership Summit, Northern Tier Wilderness Voyage and the new Troop/Team Representative program.
The handbook can serve as a starting point for new Arrowmen, or as a refresher for seasoned brothers.
