National Pow Wow

The 1987 National Pow Wow conducted at Northwest Community College in Powell, Wyoming from August 2-8. It was a great success and the knowledge gained and enthusiasm generated was felt in the lodges for a long time. Nearly 500 Arrowmen gathered for the first National Pow Wow that offered outstanding workshop seminars in three separate areas of interest: OA Showmanship, Indian Lore, and Ceremonies. As he was with the National Indian Seminar series, National OA Committee member Don Thom was the driving force behind this event. 

First OA Pow Wow at National Jamboree

The highlight for Arrowmen at the 1964 National Jamboree was the first Jamboree Order of the Arrow Pow Wow. 15,000 Arrowmen gathered together at the Valley Forge arena to hear featured speakers Founder E. Urner Goodman and former National Chief and current Chief Scout Executive Joseph Brunton, Jr. The event was described at the time as the largest ever gathering of Arrowmen and likely remains the largest such assembly to this day.
