My name is Robert McMahon and I am the First Vice-Chief(first assistant
Chief) of Mantowagan Lodge 14 in New Jersey. I have been in the Order of the
Arrow for nearly four years, and have worked with the Lodge Ceremony team
I do not know for sure what the offical national policy is for face
paints and headresses, but I will tell you how it is explained to me.
We are allowed to use face paints and headresses for our Ceremonies, but
under one special condition. My Lodge attained permission from an official
of the tribe that inhabited our area. It is for this reason, and this reason
only that we are permitted to use face paints and/or headresses.
