** IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM NATIONAL ORDER OF THE ARROW**
We know that lodges and chapters are frequently asked to perform Arrow of Light and crossover ceremonies for Cub Scout packs, which is an appropriate service in support of our packs. That said, we have had many complaints surrounding these ceremonies from various American Indian tribes due to the manner in which they are conducted as well as the inconsistent nature in which they are performed.
Beginning January 1, 2019, lodges and chapters that are asked to conduct Arrow of Light or crossover ceremonies for Cub Scout packs will only be permitted to conduct them using the new, approved official ceremonies - which are generic and can be used by any unit. These ceremonies are to be conducted in a Scout uniform and are no longer permitted to be done in American Indian regalia.
We appreciate your adherence to this new policy.
Thank you for your support.
