Research compiled in the Boy Scout series in Indian Country Today

List of articles, bibliography of documents and other resource materials compiled about the Boy Scouts, Order of the Arrow, Tribe of Mic-O-Say and Koshare dancers

In response to multiple inquiries regarding the list of research materials associated with the list of articles on the Boy Scouts and the associated factions, Indian Country Today has compiled the list of website links, documents and more for a reference to any readers or researchers that might be interested in conducting research of their own.

Some research was left out due to privacy of youth and/or personal information we acquired. There are also overlaps in research as many topics and links involve more than one faction.

Below you will find the list of articles in the series as well as the list of website links accessed in the past year to create the stories.

How the Kansas City Chiefs got their name and the Boy Scout Tribe of Mic-O-Say

The Koshare museum raises money and its ‘Native’ dancers perform even after being told they shouldn’t

Native voice helped create the Boy Scouts, Charles Eastman ‘Ohiyesa’

Solutions for moving beyond appropriation in the 21st-century scouts. Star Wars?
