Here’s the third SNAWS post with patches from 1994, 1995 (staff), 1996, and 1997 (staff).

1994 SNAWS

1995 SNAWS - Staff1996 SNAWS

1997 SNAWS - Staff

 Also, I saw this auction with a bunch of SNAWS items, including several staff patches and hat pine, closed recently on eBay:

Here’s a summary of what was included in the lot:

As listed above, there are plenty more items from the SNAWS events.  I received an image of 1988 staff patch hat pin and the participant hat pin.  I’ll post those in the next few days.

Following up on last week’s post, here are some more SNAWS patches:

As you can see, I am missing a scan of the 1993 patch…the last of the images I have will come next week.

All of the SNAWS patch images were provided by Jody T. Thanks, Jody!

This is the first of several posts about the Sharing Native American Ways Seminars (SNAWS) held jointly by Heart of America Council, BSA, Heart of America Indian Center, and the Kansas City Indian Club.  The first event was held in the mid 1980s and continues today under different leadership.  The primary goal of the event was to teach Scouts about tribal cultures and the lives of American Indians.  I attended the event at Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri in 1992, but my memories of the event are a little clouded…however, I do have some images to share.  Here they are, beginning with 1988 (noted as SNAWS IV):

1988 SNAWS

1989 SNAWS

1990 SNAWS

 

I don’t know if there were any patches before 1988, but if you have one, please send an image along.

Also, the December 1997 issue of Scouting magazine has an article about the event (starting on page 30).

I took my son to McDonald’s for lunch over the weekend and while we were there, I spotted a Scouter and his son wearing their Class A uniforms.  What caught my eye was the Scouter’s gold bordered 1985 National Jamboree CSP from Heart of America Council.  I stopped to talk to them and it turns out that they had just come from working on his son’s Eagle Scout project.  We chatted about the Jamboree and Camp Naish (they both had multiple camper year segments on their shirts) and I wished them well.  Our meeting inspired me to share the following images of the 1985 Heart of America Council CSPs.  It is my understanding that the gold border version was for adult leaders, the silver border was for youth leaders and the red border was for participants/traders.  Interestingly, these are the first JSPs issued by Heart of America Council.  The council started in 1975, so they missed out on the 1977 and 1981 Jamborees.  Fortunately, they came up with these three for the Boy Scouts’ Jubilee celebration:

Gold Border 1985 Heart of America Council JSP

Silver Border 1985 Heart of America Council JSP

Red Border 1985 Heart of America Council JSP

As with many of the local Jamborees, I am not sure if there were any other items issued (neckerchiefs, other patches, etc…).  If you have any other items from the 85 Jamboree, please send me an image.

Two weeks ago I posted some sports-themed patches, including one for the Kansas City Chiefs. Thanks to reader Mike E., we have three more Chiefs patches shown below. Hopefully the patches will bring the Chiefs some playoff luck, but I think they’ll need more than Boypower to beat the Baltimore Ravens.

Thanks, Mike E.! Go Chiefs!

Go Chiefs!

In honor of the Kansas City Chiefs winning the AFC West Division Championship, this week’s focus will be on sports themed patches…here’s a quick rundown of what I’ve seen:

Kansas City Chiefs - Touchdown Day for Scouting

I don’t have much background information on these patches and they are usually treated as a novelty…but, if you have any information or other similar patches, please share what you know. Good luck to the Chiefs in the last week of the season and moving in to the playoffs.

Kansas City Royals - 1980s

Kansas City Kings - NBA Basketball (1972-1985)

Kansas City Scouts - NHL Hockey (1974-1976)

In a rare double post, here are some more Brownsea items, this time from the late 1980s.   Included is another neckerchief, patrol ribbon identification, and a Brownsea Troop photo.  Coincidentally, I recognize a few faces in the crowd.  Do you?

Patrol Identification Ribbons, one with a Heart of America Council Brownsea Pin

Brownsea Troop 22 - mid to late 1980s

Thanks to Matt P. for sharing the images.
