Indian Summer 2003
Do you like fun? Do you like learning? Do you like Indian lore? Well if so, the Order of the Arrow has the perfect conference for you! It is the National Order of the Arrow Ceremony and Native American Indian Conference, or in short, the Indian Summer.
The Indian Summer will take place from August 2nd through the 7th in 2003. It will take place at the lovely Ridgecrest Conference Center in Asheville, North Carolina.
Now, who exactly can come to the Indian Summer? Well, any Arrowmen with an interest in learning more about American Indian culture and Arrowmen who wish to expand their skills and understanding of the Order’s ceremonies are invited. The conference is projecting about 1,000 Arrowmen to participate in this event.
The primary goal of this conference is to elaborate and expand a participant’s understanding of American Indian culture at a pace in which the students can learn more. Arrowmen will have the chance for a hands on experience with American Indian crafts, singing, dancing, customs, traditions, Indian games, and conducting a pow-wow.
Need to improve your skills in generating a successful Call-out, Ordeal, Brotherhood and Vigil Ceremony? Well you are in luck because participants will also delve deeper into the ceremony world of settings, props, understanding the ten induction principals, symbolism, knowing the lines, and development of low-cost ceremonial costumes.
The call for an Indian Summer came from fellow Arrowmen themselves. They desired another seminar like the Indian Seminar, which took place at Philmont in 1997.
The demand for such a conference was recognized by the National Order of the Arrow Committee, so they endorsed it.
Do not miss your chance to attend such an awesome experience. Come on down, learn about American Indian culture, and expand your knowledge in Order of the Arrow ceremonies.
