As our lodge grows it is really great to have so many arrowmen with a growing interest in American Indian Activities. As we get closer toward the 2018 Dixie fellowship hosted by Skyuka Lodge and the National Order of the Arrow Conference being held at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN July 29 to August 4, 2018 we will be having many opportunities to practice for the various AIA Competitions being held at both events.

We need everyone that has signed up for or is interested in Ceremonies, Drum/Sing, Individual Dance and for the first time in a long time Historic Group Dance to come to as many practices as possible. We be having these practices in 2 locations alternating between the two. Troop 307 scout hut at Saxe Gotha in Lexington and Northeast UMC, 4000 Hardscrabble rd. in NE Columbia. Tentative dates are as follows:

Lexington: - Dec 3rd from 3-5pm - Dec 17th 2-5pm (Christmas Party)

UMC Hardscrabble:DEC 10th 3-5pm

2018 dates will be added to the lodge website at later date.




In addition to weekly practices we have an opportunity to participate in the Carolina Indian Seminar being held in Statesville, NC on Jan 22, 2018. This is hosted by Eswau Huppeday Lodge 560 and is being held at Mitchell Community College it Statesville, NC. This event brings instructors from all over the country to teach all sorts of American Indian Cultural Courses from Ceremonies to powwow dance styles and outfits to Native singing.

The cost will be $45.00. This covers meals, lodging, transportation, and class cost. This is a great price for an awesome learning experience.
