The Croix Nation is a Daddy-Daughter program designed to foster and develop memories and relationships
between dads and daughters to last for 2 lifetimes!
The Nation has monthly events and each tribe also has monthly meetings which include events and service projects. All events center around developing relationships between dads and daughters.

The word Hay-Lush-Ka is of Winnebago origin, and was used to identify only those braves and princesses of great courage, accomplishment, and value to the welfare of their tribe and Nation. Hay-Lush-Ka braves and princesses were held in high honor by their fellow braves and princesses, and all strove to be called Hay-Lush-Ka. To earn the right to be called Hay-Lush-Ka a brave or princess of the Algonquin Federation must complete eleven tasks with their parent.
