Mikanakawa Tribe - The Mikanakawa Tribe was organized in 1935 in the Circle Ten Council by Tom Tally who was the Director of Camp Wisdom. It was basically banned in 1937 when the Mikanakawa OA Lodge 101 was organized by the new council executive. The tribe had call out ceremonies and ordeals similar to the OA. Tribe members did not automatically become OA members. They had to be called out again and go through the ordeal again. It was not a harmonious situation. The tribe lasted until WWII when the members went off to war. Besides the Tribe, the council also had the White Sharks of Tahkodah in the 1920's and the Camp Wisdom Honor Campers in the 1930's and 40's as honor programs.
