ABOUT THE RAVEN TRIBE
The Raven Tribe is a fraternity devoted to cultivating the qualities of a Warrior into our everyday lives. Some of us are Veterans, Law Enforcement Officers, and Martial Artists. The rest of us are simply hard-working, red-blooded, men and women who strive to be better today than we were the day before. We are philosophers, students, and teachers who work to strengthen... ourselves, our families, and our communities.
The Raven Tribe teaches men and women how to be Warriors on the battlefield of life. Members of the Raven Tribe are those who embrace the warrior ethos. Members of the tribe pursue a virtuous life and apply warriorship to every facet of their life. Members of the tribe will be self sufficient, resourceful, and courageous when facing the hardships encountered on the battlefield of life. The Raven Tribe is more than an organization; it is a way of life.
WHAT IS WARRIORSHIP?
In the simplest terms, warriorship is a lifestyle that is defined by two primary points. The first is to aspire live a virtuous life. The second is to be willing and able to serve and protect those who can not do it for themselves.
DOES THE RAVEN TRIBE TEACH A RELIGION?
The Raven Tribe does not teach religion. Each member may practice the faith of their choosing or none at all. What all members of the Raven Tribe will hold in common are a set of common virtues. Through these virtuous all members will be afforded a path to a stronger warrior ethos and acquire the skills needed to meet life head on with success.
HOW ARE TRIBES ORGANIZED?
There is one Raven Tribe, available to all. Individuals may choose to gather locally. Those who do so formally for training or kinship may name their particular band and local leadership. Others may prefer a solitary path while having access to the greater tribe when they feel it is needed. The Tribe is currently led by a senior council who makes all major operational decisions for the group.
DO I HAVE TO BE A MARTIAL ARTIST TO JOIN?
No, while Martial arts’ training is a beneficial aspect of warrior training, it is not mandatory. We are more concerned with members learning the skills needed to confront the challenges and pitfalls of life. Learning to fight does not make you a warrior. Living a virtuous life and having the heart and guts to face life’s challenges with respect and dignity is what makes a warrior.
