    I've never understood what the marvelous part of this degree team is, though I've heard it mentioned several times.
    Can someone enlighten me? I understand they have wonderful ritual which I appreciate, but what are the other draws?

    There are about 12-14 Indians each from different tribes that conduct the degree while in their tribe clothing. The WM also wears a full indian head dress. There is a few differences in which the ritual is conducted, but with permission from the OK GM. Very impressive to see them all in full tribal gear.

    Thanks for the info. I understand how full tribal clothing must be an impressive thing, I just don't get what it at all has to do with a Master Mason's degree. How do those two things belong together?

    It is as you said a Master Mason's Degree. No worries, you probably wouldn't enjoy it.

    Like those who've never been initiated not understanding initiation, I'm sure people (including me who've only seen photos) could offer all sorts of reasons, but the one way to find out, either way, it to attend...

    I wear a dinner suit, that's important to me to assist in our lodges preparation, mood and the impression it makes on candidates, I'm sure these bros, likewise create something special.. I'd check it out if I could...
