Wapiti Chapter Wapiti was originally the Shawnee Chapter of Takhonek Lodge, but our chapter recently voted to change the name to Wapiti. Wapiti is Native American word for “elk”, which is our chapter totem. Its patch features the simplified Takhonek fox over an elk of similar design with a backcountry background. The Chapter Chief, Aiden Bernard, has the Brotherhood honor and is an Eagle Scout with Troop 236 of Forrest Burdette UMC. He is a senior at Hurricane High School who is interested in mechanical engineering. The Wapiti Chapter Advisor is Dave Duncan and you can reach him at email@example.com.
