MARQUETTE — Two Marquette Scouting representatives recently attended a workshop of the American Indian Scouting Association in Boise, Idaho. Grant and Kathleen Soltwisch attended the seminar, designed to provide Indians and non-Indians with opportunities to exchange ideas about successful scouting programs for Indian youth. It was the third seminar Mrs. Soltwisch has attended to increase her knowledge and skills in organizing troops for Indian girls. She is membership director of the Peninsula Waters Girl Scout Council. It was the second for Mr. Soltwisch, a volunteer with the Hiawathaland Boy Scout Council. There are three mostly Indian troops in the U.P. — two in Sault Ste. Marie and one near L’Anse.
