I just got back from our lodge's Fall Fellowship, this weekend.
I showed the Lodge Adviser the post from Kathie about the ban
on Face and Body Painting. He was aware of the ruling, having been
at NOAC. HOWEVER, his position was, "Since there are no Native
Americans in the Lodge to object or offend, I am going to leave the
decision to the ceremonial team and its members as to whether or not
to omit the paint."
Needless to say, the boys used face paint at the ceremonies.
