The logo for Powahay District is a medicine feather from a Shaman, or Indian medicine man.  The feather is strong medicine for curing and for strength of mind, body and character. Powahay (pronounced po-WA-hay) — was a Chief and last representative of Indians in lower Fairfield County. His name was chosen as our district name to honor the Native Americans that once lived in the communities that make up our district. Learn more about the history of our district here.

Yours in Scouting,

Marc Harrison, District Chair | Jim Mitchell, District Commissioner | Jim Patterson, Senior District Executive
