At the OA call out ceramony this summer,at camp. The OA members of the
ceramony team were wearing "Indian" face paint. I am a mamber of the
OA and understand its indian lore background. But also being a Choctaw
Indian, I was disturbed about the "Hollywood" use of face paint.
My question is, what is the national policy on the use of face paint.
If these boys had earned the right to wear their family's paint, that
would be different, but, I was told they were told to use it by the
council exec, because it looked better.
