Explanation of Tawa

Akela’s Council 26


Tawa is a Native American work meaning “sun” and for Akela’s Council the meaning of tawa was changed to represent “son” to remind us of the sons (or boys) we work with, as leaders and parents in Cub Scouting. 

I have chosen a young brave to represent my tawa for this course because my goal in Scouting is to encourage boys to become strong, dependable young men.  I have 5 sons who have followed the path of their father and have grown and excelled in scouting.  3 of these young men are currently serving as Boy Scout leaders.  This Indian brave represents one who is not afraid to look ahead to see the future and be an example for good to those who follow behind.

The horse in my tawa represents the steady forward motion toward enlightenment and knowledge. 

The staff embellished with silver feathers represents each of my staff members at Akela’s Council, strong and steadfast. 

The feathers in the headdress represent each of the colors in our dens here at Akela’s Council.

My Akela’s Council den color is purple and as such has been placed at the center of the braves forehead, a reminder of the fond AC memories I carry with me. 

My son Jeff is the designer for this tawa and that in itself holds special meaning to me. 

I am so happy for this opportunity to serve with you at Akela’s Council 26
