Wihinipa Hinsa Lodge #113

Bay Area Council #574, Galveston, TX

Oa ARROW Welcome

The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the National Honor Society of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The basic unit of the OA is the lodge, which is chartered to a local BSA council. There are more than 300 lodges in the BSA. We are the Wihinipa Hinsa Lodge #113, affliated with the Bay Area Council #574. The OA uses Native American style traditions and ceremonies to bestow recognition on Scouts selected by their peers as those that best exemplify the ideals of Scouting. Arrowmen, as they are called, wear a sash over their right shoulder to signify membership in the Order of the Arrow.

Take some time to explore these pages then make sure you visit the National Order of the Arrow Jumpstart site for new Arrowmen. It will help you to understand more about the OA.
