To replace missing beads for your coup, go to: Missing Beads.
The lodge has a coup system. The coup is a necklace that has two (plastic) eagle claws in the center and beads signifying the accomplishments of an Arrowman. The claws are used to show an arrowman’s rank and the chapter he belongs to. Ordeal members wear their claws pointing outward, brotherhood members turn their claws so that they face together, and Vigil members add a totem representative of their vigil name between their claws. The chapter color goes on the base of the claws. Brotherhood ranks such as Firebuilder, Runner, and Keeper of the Sacred Bundle are represented by painting yellow, sky blue, and white (respectively) bands on the tips of the claws. The bands are ¼ inch in width and are only added when that elevation has been achieved. See the diagrams below.
Chapter colors are:
Chaparral – Sky Blue
Cibolo – Green
Comanche Trails – Orange with Silver Stripes
Lone Star – White
The beads are awarded by the lodge as follows:
