Kathie, Jim et al,
Indian Nations is the home of the original Pine Tree leadership course
for youth leaders. It also has been a test council for several
proposed policies which later were adopted by national.
Indian Nations Council is the council to the south and east of Will Rogers
Council. It is one of two huge councils in the state. Indian Nations
includes all of the Tulsa area and extends east to the Arkansas border.
The Last Frontier Council includes the Oklahoma City area and extends
west to the Texas panhandle. Both Indian Nations and Last Frontier
have districts larger than Will Rogers Council. Will Rogers borders
Indian Nations on the East and Last Frontier on the South. Will
Rogers participates in joint activities with both of the larger councils.
I cite some examples of join activities below.
Both Indian Nations and Last Frontier run commissioners' college for
all of the councils in the area. I understand these two councils
pioneered the concept of commissioners' college but not necessarily
under that name.
In my Woodbadge course in Indian Nations we had one patrol from
Will Rogers (the good ole Buffalos :-) and one from Cherokee (Bartlesville)
area in addition to the six patrols from Indian Nations. The next
Woodbadge course will be at Will Rogers Scout Reservation and have
five patrols from Indian Nations, three from Will Rogers.
