Who We Are
The Southwest Indian Guides and Indian Princess are recreational programs designed to foster strong bonds between a father and his son and/or daughter. Ages range from 5 to 13. This encourages quality time between dads and their kids. Our families are primarily from the surrounding Southwest suburbs including Orland Park, Tinley Park, Palos Park, Mokena, New Lenox, Frankfort, Lockport, Oaklawn, Chicago and many more.
We are two strong nations affiliated with the much larger Algonquin Longhouse Federation. The Indian Guides & Indian Princesses program has long held the Native American traditions of building and fostering strong bonds between parent and child. Unlike "drop off" programs, all activities include both parent and child. Together, you will learn the ancient aims of an honorable culture and hear the voice of the Great Spirit in the winds of the earth. Together, you will journey to places near and far: camp deep in the woods, build and race a pinewood derby car, sleep overnight at a museum. Wherever you go, you and your children will carry this gift of time together in your hearts forever.
Why should you join our group? Simple. To forge a stronger bond with your daughter(s), sons and in turn with your family, community, and nature. It is a lifetime of memories that requires so little effort but gives you such a strong return on your investment.
