About the Section

Gateway Region Section 2 (G2), led by its three elected youth officers, an adviser, and staff adviser, supports the nine lodges in its care. These officers answer to the Council of Chiefs, a body comprised of lodge chiefs, representing the nine lodges in our section: Aina Topa Hutsi, Colonneh, Hasinai, Karankawa, Tatanka, Tonkawa, and Wahinkto, Wewanoma, and Wihinipa Hinsa Lodges.

Our section, G2, strives to provide leadership, guidance, and tools to help our lodges in their day-to-day programs. It is responsible for bridging the gap between the National Committee and the lodges it represents. We also plan an annual conclave. A conference attended by over 500 Arrowmen who learn, compete, and create friendships. We also provide assistance to our lodges in the form of training and advice. The section may also plan training seminars, and promote the national program of emphasis.
