Council Fire & Aims Walk - 10/10/20

The Croix nation kicked off the new hunting season (and closed the previous one) with the Aims Walk and Council Fire ceremony on October 10.
As with tradition each tribe walked along the Ceremonial Walk on the path to the Council Fire reciting the aims, song, slogan, purpose requested by each tribal chief.
The Nation Firestarter was successful in building a big enough (and safe) fire to warm the entire nation spread around the campfire in a socially distant manner.

The council fire started with the inductee ceremony where 21 new princesses and their braves were introduced and welcomed to the Croix Nation. The new members are:

The council fire concluded with the Nation Chief Selection Ceremony. The Great Spirit was summoned to select the next Chief of the Mighty Croix Nation. The chiefs of the seven tribes and all the members of the Nation Longhouse council threw their offering into the fire but only one offering was accepted by the Great Spirit, the offering of Hawkeye of the mighty Apache who will serve as the next Nation Chief, congrats Hawkeye!

Thank you to Rolling Stone for guiding the nation during a very challenging hunting season last year.


Thank you to all braves and princesses for wearing masks at all time and practicing social distancing during the event

A big thank you to Jan for securing the site and to Jack and Milton for handling the parking and collections at the gate. The site of the event was Hendrik’s stable, a private stable that runs a horse rescue program. The Croix Nation donated $500 to the horse rescue program.
