Brotherhood!
Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:14

Brothers!

This is your Inductions Vice Chief speaking. I am talking you today to offer you a special opportunity to help the T’Kope Kwiskwis Lodge. What is this opportunity, you ask? To become a Brotherhood Ceremonialist.

Any youth member of the T’Kope Kwiskwis Lodge who holds the honor of Brotherhood or Vigil is eligible to become a Brotherhood Ceremonialist. Currently, the Lodge is strapped for Brotherhood Ceremonialists, and desperately needs more. We have right now only one Ceremonialist for the Nutiket principle, and one Ceremonialist for the Meteu principle to serve the entire Lodge! While the Ceremonialists who can perform these roles love serving the Lodge, it makes it difficult for them to perform Brotherhood Ceremonies outside of official Lodge-wide events.

If you, or any fellow arrowman you know is looking to help the Lodge, this is one of the greatest services that you could ever provide. This not only helps the Lodge earn the JTE award (which gives us funding from the National Committee to help us improve the camps of the Chief Seattle Council), but also makes a personal impact on the lives of every arrowman who goes through the Ceremony. There is no greater honor than the honor of serving your brothers. So please, I encourage you, give Ceremonies a try and become a Brotherhood Ceremonialist today.

2016 Vigil Selection Begins
Tuesday, 08 March 2016 15:09

 

VigilHonorTriangleDear members of the T’Kope Kwiskwis Lodge,

My fellow brothers in the Wimachtendienk W. W., it is with great pleasure to announce to you the beginning of the search for the 2016 T’Kope Kwiskwis Vigil Honor Class. This process over the next few months will allow you, the members of the lodge, to nominate eligible candidates for consideration by our committee.

The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: the T’Kope Kwiskwis Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or our Council’s Camps. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation.

Brotherhood Honor
Tuesday, 08 March 2016 11:46

Brothers,

My name is Adam; I have the privilege of being the Chairman of the Lodge's Brotherhood Committee. I’d like to take this time to inform everyone who has been an Arrowman for ten months or longer and has not earned their Brotherhood sash to do so at our upcoming events, the April (08-10 at Camp Pigott), May (13-15 at Camp Edward), June (03-05 at Camp Parsons), and September (9-11) Ordeals as well as at Spring Fellowship (June 17-18).

To be eligible for this honor, you must have gone through your Ordeal at least 10 months ago, and be current on your dues. In addition, you should refresh yourself with the OA Obligation, Admonition, Song, and hand clasp. To let us know that you are ready to go through your Brotherhood, we ask that you please write a letter addressed to the Lodge Secretary, Murphy Bush at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , and tell us a bit about what you've been doing in Scouting over the past ten months, and what you intend to do in Scouting after receiving the Brotherhood Honor and what the Ordeal experience meant to you.

If you are eligible for this honor and would like to participate or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Hope to see you all wearing Brotherhood sashes soon!

Yours In Service,

Adam K

Brotherhood Committee Chair

 

 
Cub Scout Potlatch
Tuesday, 08 March 2016 02:02
Klahowya brothers!
 
Recently our lodge held a Potlatch for Cub Scouts all around Chief Seattle council. These Cub scouts came to complete a requirement for one of their electives up at our
lodge. But what they left with was much more than just a completed requirement
but an interest in the culture of the Northwest tribes and a fascination in how we, as a
lodge function.

These scouts questions reflected their fascination, from the
materials the lodge was made out of to the totem poles towering above their
heads. This is what being a member of the OA is about. Sparking that fascination
in some scout, making them want to be more, desiring to be old enough so they
can to join our ranks. I personally am glad I got to be involved in such an
amazing moment and I hope the joy you receive in the lodge sparks your joy in
scouting as it has for me.
 
Yours In Scouting

Chapter Fun
Friday, 08 January 2016 01:40

Parties were all around us this past holiday season, one in particular stood out. Talapus Tillicum ecstatically celebrated the end of the year by inviting our brothers from the LTI chapter (Alpine). Lots of nice gifts were exchanged in our white elephant gift exchange, pizza and ice cream were also enjoyed. Incredibly, we also had time to show off our amazing Arrow of Light ceremony. Lastly, we had a most superb time at our December meeting, we call upon all Arrowmen to go to their chapter’s meeting.

 

 
Ceremonies Regalia Restoration Effort
Friday, 08 January 2016 01:11

On Saturday, December 13th, a handful of brave arrowmen journeyed up to the T’Kope Longhouse to accomplish one goal. Sort the Ceremonies closet.

Over a few gruelling hours (some even without power), members from the SMK and Sunyakwa Chapter took time to completely rearrange the Ceremonies closet, while repairing pieces of T’Kope’s beloved regalia.

The valiant effort reaped great rewards. The closet has be rearranged by the condition of the items inside, on whether they are usable. In addition, the participants fully repaired the Sunyakwa Set of Ceremonial Robes.

We couldn’t have done this without the dedication of these Ceremonialists and Arrowmen. But there is much more to be done on our robes and other equipment. We are planning another of these weekends in January (the date will be announced soon), and hope to see you there.

If you’re interested in joining us, please contact Jacob Thornton at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Lunch will be provided.

Help us repair our beloved regalia
