Lowaneu Allanque Lodge #41 (Three Fires Council BSA) was formed when Natokiokan Lodge #41 (Old Dupage Area Council) and Glikhikan Lodge #106 (Old Two Rivers Council) merged in September 1995. The new lodge received its first charter from the National Order of the Arrow January 1, 1996. Natokiokan Lodge was first chartered on June 20, 1929. Natokiokan means “Two Medicine Lodge” and its totem was the Red Tail Hawk. This was the first merger for this proud old lodge. Glikhikan Lodge has gone through several mergers since the number 106 was issued to Wiyapunit Lodge on January 1, 1938. Wiyapunit meaning “Elk” merged with Neconchemok Lodge # 120, which means, “Built like a Bear” in 1968.
