Indian Guides and Indian Princesses - Chiefs Scholarship
The Chief’s Scholarship has been established to continue the bond between fathers and their daughters/sons as they grow older and prepare for life as young adults.
The first Indian Guide Program was formed in Richmond Heights, Missouri in 1926 based on the inspiration of Joe Friday, an Ojibway Indian hunting guide, and the insight of Harold Keltner, the director of the St. Louis YMCA. Years later, in 1954, the first Indian Princess Program was formed in Fresno, California.
The Kettering Indian Princess/Guide Programs, like the original, were designed to foster a strong and lasting bond between fathers and their daughters/sons. The Programs, guided by a set of six Aims, which stress the importance of respect for each other and the family, and the need to support your community through service projects and volunteering. In 2002 the name of the program was changed to the Adventure Guides and Princesses.
