Elangomat is the Lenni Lenape word meaning friend. As an Elangomat, you’ll be responsible for a “clan” of 8-10 candidates with whom you will work with throughout their Ordeal. You will spend most of the day with your clan, eating the same food, doing the same work, and setting an example of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service which the candidates learn through you. A brief training course given by your chapter or the lodge will tell you all you’ll need to know as an Elangomat. Because of the influence you’ll have in motivating the quality of your new brothers, your service as an Elangomat is one of the most important and rewarding things you can do in the both the chapter and the lodge. Being an Elangomat is one way of getting a requirement signed-off for Brotherhood!
Anyone interested in being an Elangomat, please contact Elangomat Chairman.

The Lodge has created a two part patch to recognize those Elangomats who successfully complete a list of requirements that encourage Elangomats to remain in active contact with their clans for an entire year.
