Indah is the Apache word for their people meaning ‘the living’. To the Apache to live was to Scout, to be the seer not the seen, to move like the shadows, to possess an interactive map in your mind with every detail of your territory, to embody the skills of the stalk and touch wild animals. 200 years of cultural oppression nearly annihilated the hidden skills of the Scout, in fact the Apache began referring to themselves as Indeh ‘the dead’. But that is now changing, The Sacred Skills are once again returning to the Human Family and the Apache are finding life again. The Scouting Guild is an exhilarating one, but be warned, it will completely change the way you think, act, move and live.
Invisibility is the essence of the Scout. When you spend some time observing animals you will find that sitting still is one of the most powerful things you can do in the forest. Whether you are predator or prey, to move causes a big disturbance, if you can still your body your mind will follow and before you know it you will become invisible. Maybe not literally invisible, but pretty close, when you are in this state you will see all kinds of things.
