About Joe Friday

"In addition to serving as Honorary Chief, he lectured nationally during the months of January (Snow Moon), February (Hunger Moon), and March (Crow Moon)."

Joe Friday was the founding Indian teacher and Chief of the Indian Guides, sponsored by the YMCA. The complete story is to be found here:

He had no children of his own. So he helped teach the children of others how to behave and survive in society and in the woods.

Some of his work was conducted in the Midwest of the United States with very active participation in the St. Louis, Missouri area. His friends were Harold Keltner and other men that spread Indian Guide precepts. Many Tribes were created in the St. Louis area based on his work and attendance at pow-wows and gatherings spreading the word of Indian Guides.
