Order of Red Men - IORM
Improved Order of Red Men, a fraternal
organization which once was very active in Camden and Camden County, is best
remembered in the city of Camden for having built the monument
and statue which stood for over 60 years in Pulaski Park, on Haddon Avenue
south of Benson Street, the present site of the
of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Camden Campus.
The monument, which is topped by a
bronze statue of an American Indian
Chief, was erected to memorialize South Jersey members of the group who had
died while serving with America's armed forces during World War I. Nicola
Berardo, a sculptor who lived in Camden, was commissioned to execute
1981 Pulaski Park was demolished to make way for the University of Medicine and
Dentistry of New Jersey Camden Campus. This statue and a statue of General
Pulaski were supposedly put in storage, to be re-erected in Camden. This,
however, was not the case, as this monument was taken to Route 9 and Center
Street in Tuckerton NJ, where it was rededicated on May 21, 1981. The Pulaski
Monument was taken to Cooper River Park in Pennsauken NJ.
1886 George Reeser Prowell wrote the following account of the Red Men and their
female counterparts, the Daughters of the Forest for his book History of Camden
County, New Jersey.
IMPROVED ORDER OP RED MEN.
order claims its origin as a patriotic association under the title of
Society of Red Men, composed of volunteers who were in garrison at Fort
Mifflin, on the Delaware River, opposite Red Bank, in 1813. It is a
fraternal and benevolent organization, with its ritual based upon the
customs of the North American Indians. The officers are known as Sachem,
Sagamore and Prophet, and the members as warriors and braves, while the
era dates from the landing of Columbus, and their time is divided into
grand suns, moons, suns, runs and breaths. The subordinate body is
called Tribe, that of the State, Great Council, and of the country,
Great Council of the United States. The Great Council of New Jersey was

benefits out of their private purses, but persistence won at last and a
flood tide of prosperity set in, which has continued until the Lenni
Lenapes number seven hundred and thirty-two and the wampum belt contains

Its hardly accurate to describe the
Improved Order of Red Men as the first Native American order--they didn’t
admit Native Americans. But they were at least among the earliest
American orders not imported from somewhere
else. Understandably, the
order had a hard time during the Indian Wars of the 1880’s. There may be
some small individual Lodge sites and there are a few Red Men still
around. There are many collectors of their jewelry, probably because
of the Indian motif.
Who Are The
The Fraternity was founded in
1765 and was originally known as the Sons of Liberty. These patriots
concealed their identities and worked "underground" to help establish
freedom and liberty in the Early Colonies. They patterned themselves after
the great Iroquois Indian nation and its democratic governing body. Their
system with elected representatives to governing tribal councils had been
in existence for several centuries.
After the American Revolution the
name was changed to The Order of Red Men. They kept the customs and
terminology of the Indians as a basic part of the Fraternity. Some of the
words and terms may sound strange, but they soon become a familiar part of
the language for every member. The Masons are similar to the Order of Red
Men in that they have patterned their rituals and work after the Ancient
Masonic Craftsman. The Order of Red Men is a National Fraternal
Organization that believes in ..
Love and Respect of the
Preserving our Nation by
defending and upholding the principle of free Government...
America and the democratic way
Preserving the traditions and
history of this great Country...
Creating and inspiring a
greater love for the United States of America...
Helping our fellow men through
organized charitable programs;
Linking our members together in
a common bond of Brotherhood and Friendship;
Perpetuating the beautiful
legends and traditions of a vanishing race and the keeping alive of its
customs, ceremonies, and philosophies.
Legally, The Order of Red Men is
a Patriotic Fraternity Chartered by Congress. It is a Non-Profit
Organization devoted to Inspiring a greater love for the United States of
America and the principles of American Liberty.
History of the Red Men
The Order of Red Men traces its
origin to certain secret Patriotic Societies founded before the American
Revolution. They were established to promote Liberty and to defy the
tyranny of the English Crown. Among the early groups were: The Sons of
Liberty, Sons of Tamina and the Red Men.
On December 16, 1773 a group of
men, all members of the Sons of Liberty, met in Boston to protest the tax
on tea imposed by England. When their protest went unheeded, they
disguised themselves as Mohawk Indians, proceeded to Boston harbor and
dumped overboard 342 chests of English tea.
During the Revolutionary War,
members of secret societies quenched their council fires and took up
muskets to join with the Continental Army. To the cause of Freedom and
Liberty, they pledged their lives, their fortunes and sacred honors. At
the end of the hard fought war, the American Republic was born and was
soon acknowledged among the Nations of the world.
Following the Revolution the
various secret societies founded before and during the conflict continued
in existence as brotherhoods or fraternities.
For the next 35 years each group
went its own way, under many different names. In 1813, at historic Fort
Mifflin, near Philadelphia, several of these groups came together and
formed one organization known as the Society of Red Men.
At Baltimore, Maryland, in 1847,
the various local tribes came together and formed a national organization
called the Grand Council of the United States.
With the formation of a national
organization, the Order of Red Men soon spread, and within 30 years there
were State Great Councils in 21 states with a membership of over 150,000.
The Order continued to grow and by 1920, tribes in 46 states totaled
membership over one half million.
Today the Order of Red Men
continues to offer all Patriotic Americans an organization that is pledged
to the high ideals of Freedom, Friendship and Charity. The same ideas on
which the American Nation was founded.
A local group of Red Men is
called a Tribe, and its Lodge is called a Wigwam. The supreme head
of the order is called the Great Inchonee. The officers of a Tribe are:
Sachem (chief); Prophet (chaplain); Senior Sagamore (lesser chief); Junior
Sagamore (lesser chief); Chief of Records (secretary); Collector of Wampum
(financial secretary); Keeper of Wampum (treasurer).
Even though Aprons were abolished
as part of the regalia in 1869, regalia initially consisted of both aprons
and collars. The collars were color-coded representing each of the
three degrees: The initial, or first degree collar was pink (later changed
to orange); the second degree collar was blue; and the third degree was
scarlet. The aprons were scarlet, trimmed with the color of the degree of
The Red Men degrees are called
Adoption, Hunter, Warrior, and Chief. In the Adoption Degree, a paleface
is naturalized into the Tribe. The Hunter's Degree, which is a prelude to
the Warrior Degree, illustrated the manners and customs governing the
chase, by which the hunters provided nourishment for the tribe. The
Warrior's Degree illustrated the manner of enlistment for war. The Chief's
Degree illustrated the religious forms and ceremonies of the Indians. The
Degrees utilize such emblems as the bow and arrow, tomahawk, war club,
wampum belt, peace pipe, and skeleton.
The IROM's stated goal is: "to
perpetuate the beautiful legends and traditions of a vanishing race and to
keep alive its customs, ceremonies and philosophies."
The Degree of Pocahontas was
created for women on January 15, 1887, drawing on the legend of its
namesake and the virtues of her life.
In November 1878, the Improved
Order of Red Men organized the National Haymakers' Association which was
its "fun" or "friendship" branch that was formed in response to the
success of the Masonic Shrine of North America which had been founded in
In 1847, the various local tribes
came together in Baltimore, Maryland and formed a national organization
called the Grand Council of the United States.

" I am confident that in the
final analysis we shall find that the stability of our government depends
not so much on our armies and navies, though they may be vastly important,
but rather, we must depend upon the Brotherhood of Humanity as represented
by great force of fraternity. The fraternal societies are one of the
greatest powers for good government and the protection of the home that we
have in this country. The government will endure just as long as we
protect the great interests represented by our fraternal
