NATIVE AMERICANS PERFORM TRADITIONAL MASONIC RITUAL

Friday, 16 September 2011
A special event organised by Hemlock Stone Lodge saw a demonstration by the Oklahoma Masonic Indian Degree Team of the making of a Master Mason.

In the presence of the Provincial Grand Master of Nottinghamshire, Robin Wilson, and the Grand Master of Oklahoma, the ritual was a portrayal of the US ceremony based on the Scottish Rites. Conducted in two parts, the first in working dress, and the second in Native American dress, prayers were offered in the form of a chant in Choctaw, a language common to the tribes of Oklahoma.
