Philmont Scout Ranch
Registration fee is $285

Registration Information Available Here

Wachipi is the Lakota word for dance, a gathering of people for fun and fellowship. That’s what the Wachipi American Indian Seminar will be: Arrowmen from around the country gathering to celebrate, honor, and learn about the Order of the Arrow’s rich history and tradition of the American Indian.  

Both dancers and ceremonialists (youth and adult with any level of experience) are welcome to attend and broaden their knowledge. Arrowmen will be fully immersed in American Indian activities from around the country, with a focus on the Plains Indians. An emphasis will be put on craft and improving ceremonial and dance attire. Registration is now open and the price will be $285; attendance will be by individual registration rather than as lodge contingents.
