Seton teaching fire making to the Boy Scouts.
slide 10 of 10

Throughout The Gospel of Redman, Ernest Thompson Seton has demonstrated his deep admiration for the “Redman,” and out of respect for them incorporated many of their traditions and beliefs into the Boy Scouts of America, including a deep respect for nature, profound respect for God, and a love of vigorous outdoor living.

This is best expressed in Seton's own words, "And still I held my vision of the perfect man,—athletic, fearless, kind, picturesque, wise in the ways of the woods, and without reproach of life. And by a long, long trail, with ample knowledge of histories and of persons, I was led, as many before have been, to choose the ideal American Indian. By all the evidence at hand, his was a better system, a better thought, because it produced far nobler, better men. He, more than any type I know, is the stuff that fires our highest dreams of manhood, realized complete. Him, therefore, I proclaim as the model for an outdoor life, our travel guide on the fourfold way that leads to perfect manhood.
