The Indian Nations Council, originally called the Tulsa Council, was first chartered in 1911 and has grown to serve over 18 counties in eastern Oklahoma. Scouting has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun and adventure in the outdoors. We care passionately about what is happening to kids and our communities – and are dedicated to supporting an exciting, quality program that builds better young people and our future leaders.
Our Council is divided into 3 geographical areas called districts. Each district is made up of local Scouting units called Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and Exploring Posts. These units are chartered to a local school, religious organization, or community center.
The Council serves 9,691 youth and their families in eastern Oklahoma through the dedicated service and leadership of 1,400 adult volunteers. Scouting is completely funded by the generosity of those that believe in its mission.
Scouting activities happen all year-long in your local neighborhood or at one of our beautiful scout camps.
If you want to get involved with Scouting or have a question about the exciting opportunities Scouting offers to families, please contact us at 918-743-6125.
One of the Indian Nation Council's most exciting features is ZBASE - a brand new high adventure base where you and your friends set out on a 7-day trek located on 35,000 acres of Zink Ranch and Skiatook Lake and test your limits on 10 adventure areas.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent.
