Troop 493 Indian Dance Team


Campfire                                                                                                      Chiefs - November 2013                                                                                                         Duel

Beginning in 1977, B.S.A. Troop 493 organized an Indian Dance Team for the purposes of providing an outlet for scouts to learn about Native American dance techniques and achieve the Indian Lore merit badge.   Troop 493 maintains the ONLY Troop Indian Dance Team in Tidewater Council that is not affiliated with the Order of The Arrow (O/A).  The Troop’s Dance Team is an all volunteer group of scouts interested in practicing and performing authentic Indian dances for other scouts, cubs, and the general public when requested.  Scouts help make their own outfits and attend an annual Pow-Wow where they can get numerous outfit and dance ideas, and purchase Indian items to use during their performances.  The Dance team usually practices on the Monday evenings that no troop meeting is scheduled, and offers an excellent opportunity for our scouts to get comfortable interacting with other scouts and the general public.
