That is me in regalia officiating a 'cross-over' ceremony of cub scouts into Boy Scouts. This ceremony has been deemed unsafe as it uses accelerant, but it is the burning of a neckerchief and any resultant ash (which there is none since the acetone burns leaving the cloth intact) signifies a less than ready spirit to be in a Boy Scout Troop.

I've always done the simple 'scout moc kits' lately (latest being hard sole - kinda of like dockers). I'm wanting to tackle a Plains Hard Sole with the latigo sole & beaded brain-tanned upper <Cheyenne-Arapahoe-Lakota style>. Have the paper pattern that I did in class last week; just need to get the leather & sewing awl.

Center seam, pucker toe, etc. would not compliment my plains-style clothing. There are some Order of the Arrow ceremony teams nearby that do center seam mocs, as their costumes are Eastern Woodland, Piedmont, or pre-contact Powhatan.

I see. So the Cheyenne-Arapahoe-Lakota style is more in harmony with your regalia. Keeping to the same style is very important for a completed look. I will be anxious to see them when you finish the work. I am really impressed with your bead and ribbon work. It has prompted me to pull over my beading tray from the chest of drawers next to my computer.

I guess the picture portrays the same atmosphere of that night at the Pow Wow. Thanks, M'Ladies. Hard to be humble when the pride gets stroked as it has for the past week or so.

"Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble.
When you're perfect in every way.
I can't wait to look in the mirror,
I get better lookin' each day."

Who sang that song? I loved it!

You have a right to be proud of your work, Beetle -- it is very well done and beautiful.
