Running The Council

from Things To See In Springtime





Every good Woodcrafter should know the way of the Council Ring.


Select some quiet level place out of doors; in the woods if possible, for it is so much better if surrounded by trees.


Make a circle of low seats; the circle should be not less than 12 feet or more than 20 feet across, depending somewhat on the number to take part.


In the middle prepare for a small fire. At one side is a special seat for the Chief; this is called the Council Rock.


On very important occasions take white sand or lime, and draw a circle around the fire. Then from that draw the four lamps and the twelve laws as in Tale 105.


When all is ready with the Guide on the Council Rock, and the Scouts in their seats, the Guide stands up and says: "Give ear my friends, we are about to hold a council. I appoint such a one, Keeper of the fire and so-and-so, Keeper of the tally. Now let the Fire-keeper light the fire."


Next the Tally-keeper calls the roll. After which the business part of the Council is carried on exactly the same as any ordinary meeting, except that instead of addressing the "Chairman," they say, "O Chief"; instead of "yes" they say "ho," instead of "no" they say "wah."


The order of doings in Council is:—













































Opening and fire-lighting
Roll Call
Reading and accepting tally of last Council
Reports of Scouts (things observed or done)
Left-over business
New business
Honours
Honourable mention
(For the good of the Tribe) Complaints and suggestions.
(Here business ends and entertainment begins.)
Challenges
Games, contests, etc.
Close by singing Omaha Prayer (Tale 108)
