The Legend of the Yellow Feather tells us about one of the first camporees at Camp Mu‐Sha‐Ni. An old Indian shared the secrets of the beaver hiding places, wild flowers, trees, and other animal homes with the girls. As a token of friendship, the Indian gave them each a yellow feather.
Sometimes during evening campfires the Indian can be seen walking in the distance visiting Camp Mu‐Sha‐Ni to be sure Girl Scouts are taking good care of the land and the animals that live there.
