Our pack has a lady come and explain all of the colors of the feathers. Part of the ceremony is calling them with their Indian names. I worked with Dawson to choose something that I thought fit him. But of course this picky boy couldn't decide. Finally, he decided on Wachinksapa, which means wise. I think that this describes him as the old soul that he is.
Then the boys each have a pouch that you put something in meaning in it so that they can remember the things that are important as they journey through life as a boy scout and priesthood holder. It was quite emotional to see the leaders get choked up and start to cry. These boys are 'their boys.'

These are Wachinksapa's faces as we did the ceremony and added to their leather pouch.
Kade, Teagan, Dawson, with 2 of the very best!
Boys, we are so proud of you and your accomplishments! Keep up the hard work and always remember who you are!
