Description

Indian Guides was a program created in the Young Mens Christian Association to foster companionship between a father and his son through shared activities like camping, meetings and competitions. In 2006, YMCA Indian Guides celebrated 80 years as a YMCA program. Similar programs for girls, were called Princess, Braves or Maidens. The parents and children were divided into tribes.

Chief of the Maubila Tribe at the Tuscaloosa YMCA in 1949 was Clemson Duckworth in the middle back row and, in front of him, his son Joe Brown Duckworth. In the middle front is John Ben Bomar and son Ben Jr. On the right front is Dr. Charlie Abbott and son Charlie Little Abbott. Others in the photo are unknown.
