Notes

From the 1957 Area III-C Manual of Lodges:

“Out of the rain and mud at Camp Nisatin, the site of the 1952 Area III-A Powwow, came a fine and wonderful development. In spite of the more than slight dew and cold, the Powwow was a tremendous success. Splendid fellowship and fine leadership, excellent forums, discussion groups, exhibits and demonstrations, colorful ceremonies; all these were there. But, happily the big event was the vote which placed the southernmost Lodges into an Area of its own– III-C. Region 3 at that time had only two Arrow Areas, hence III-C.”

Camp Nisatin, considered the birthplace of Area 3-C, is now part of Hawk Mountain Scout Reservation.

In March of 2009 a neckerchief slide from the 1952 Area 3-A Pow Wow sold on eBay for over $500.
