Congratulations to all our Troop 451 Mic-O-Say tribesmen!!
A note on Tribal names: You may have surmised that there is typically a convention to the way these names are given. The first member of a family is given a name based on some distinguishing characteristic or experience. For example, let’s say a Scout is inducted into the Tribe and given the name “Rabbit Bear.” Then, perhaps, his younger brother is inducted ina later year. That Scout would be called Little Rabbit Bear. If their father were next inducted, he would be Big Rabbit Bear. Their mother might be inducted as Ina (mother of) Rabbit Bear. A younger brother still would be Least Rabbit Bear. When a parent is inducted before a son, it is they who receive the unmodified base-name. The first son inducted then becomes “Little”, while a second would be “Least.” It can get very interesting (and a bit confusing) when a grandson is inducted.
While the convention is not absolute, most names bestowed by the Tribe of Mic-O-Say follow these patterns.
After the induction ceremonies, we returned to our campsite, Sioux Lookout, for a bite of pizza and a good night's sleep!
