Medicine Bow's Honor Shirt:
Medicine Bow honors those who choose to dedicate themselves to the
proficiency of ancient skills and self-reliance. In three areas of primitive skills a
standing offer exists for students who would meet the challenge of THE RED SHIRT, a
beautiful garment bearing the same logo as the shirt that two-day workshop students
receive as a gift on their second visit...but with the stunning colors emblematic
of an extraordinary challenge met.
The Honor Shirt can be won by any veteran student of Medicine Bow in
Botany, Fire Making and Archery. The rules for each challenge are written up on the plaque
at Medicine Bow Lodge. The attempt to win the shirt is made by appointment with Mark
Warren. Only one try is permissible in one day's time. But the frequency of
attempting-days is limitless.
Of the thousands of students who have attended classes here, thirteen
people own a Medicine Bow Honor Shirt. The shirt-wearers have achieved their place
in the RED SHIRT SOCIETY from ages 12 to 40. There is no set of parameters for this.
Each year at the winter's solstice the RED SHIRT SOCIETY is celebrated
at Medicine Bow with a dinner and ceremony at the lodge.
