Fact of the Day: Akela

In the Cub Scouts, almost any leader is referred to as Akela. The name comes from Akela, the leader of the wolves in The Jungle Book.

That is interesting and I love the illustration.

Regarding your comment about the Seminoles on my post yesterday, I agree that it is shameful what our government did. I am proud though of the fact that FSU has a very special relationship with the Seminole Tribe. You can read about it here: https://unicomm.fsu.edu/messages/relationship-seminole-tribe-florida/
