The Oklahoma Indian Degree Team

Bro John Flanagan, Grant MacLeod and Brian Smalorek from Lodge Houston St. Johnstone No.242  

The eleven-man degree team, from the State of Oklahoma in the USA represented seven separate Indian Nations. The Apache - Shawnee – Muskogee –Chickasaw – Keetoowah – Sycamore- and Ottawa, all of whom were resplendent in Indian apparel - are touring the United Kingdom, bringing their own unique brand of freemasonry, in a some what colourful, dignified and impressive manner.

On entry to the lodge, the degree team was accompanied by Bro Johnny D Onkst - The Senior Grand Warden of Oklahoma. The exemplification of the degree started with Bro, Joseph Lynch PM (Apache) taking the chair. After an able and competent first part, the degree team retired then returned in full Indian apparel. The Master for the second part of the degree was Bro. Louis Melford Fish (Muskogee Creek).

The degree was conferred in an excellent manner with humour at the appropriate places, for example when the Ru….s were taken outwith the city walls and dealt with , upon return three "scalps" were thrown on the floor. At the conclusion of the degree it was explained that the degree team had been given some flexibility while in the UK and that usually, the degree would be conferred with more solemnity.
