Ashie Lodge # 436 (1950 – 1992)
San Diego County Council
San Diego, California
Ashie Lodge # 436 was created in 1950, serving the San Diego County Council # 49. The Lodge Totem was the Thunderbird and the Lodge Symbol was the Sandpainting, both promimently placed on their pocket flaps and patches.
Ashie won the Section W4B Niganet Award 3 Times (1974, 1979, 1984), the Section W4B Lodge Excellence Award 6 Times (1975, 1976, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989), and the Section W4B Spirit Award once (1982).
Two Ashie Lodge members were elected Western Region Chief, Michael Southall (1989) and Lou Monville III (1991).
Ashie Lodge merged with Pang Lodge # 532 in late 1992. It was announced at the 1992 Section W4B Conclave that the selected Lodge name would be “Tiwahe.” It’s successor Lodge, Tiwahe Lodge # 45, continues to exist today.
