Calling all youth brothers!

Think back to when you were first inducted into the OA. Remember that Arrowman who sought you out or the Indian that played the drum. Remember how you felt during your call out with all the Indians talking, the drum being played loudly, and the two Arrowmen running back and forth picking boys. Would you want to be one of those men?

The Vice Chief of Brotherhood is currently seeking out people for our ceremonies teams this year. If you are interested email and cc Please include Name and Honor so we can call upon you when needed!
