Nataepu Shohpe Lodge was created in 2012 as Nacha Tindey and Indian Drum Lodges merged. This merge was necessitated by the Area 2 Project, which sought to streamline Scouting in Michigan. Many changes were made, including the consolidation of nine councils in the state down to four. Our council, the President Gerald R. Ford Council, serves 25 counties in western and northwestern Michigan, including the Grand Rapids, Cadillac, and Traverse City areas. You can use the bar at the top of this website to navigate and learn more about our lodge, including the name of your chapter and where it meets, as well as event information.
