Why choose a NATIONAL LONGHOUSE® program over another?  Our program enables one on one interaction with your child, strengthens the bond between parent and child, instills team concepts, builds self-confidence, and helps develop leadership skills.  NATIONAL LONGHOUSE®  programs also reinforce spirituality, stimulates cultural awareness, and provides fun activities and memories that will last a lifetime!

Please note that the Big Walnut Longhouse is for parents and children in the Columbus, OH area.  If you live elsewhere, please click here to find the program that is nearest to you.

Price:  Annual membership is $75 per calendar year.

This covers the costs of several of our events and the awards that go along with them, and even includes your Pinewood Derby car kit.
Additionally, the cost of membership includes liability insurance should something unforeseen occur during one of our events.

The New Member Kit is included in the annual membership fee.  This kit includes the Program Guide, the NATIONAL LONGHORN® Patch, and the Tribe Patch.

New members are responsible for purchasing their vests.  They can be ordered from Cow Catcher Leatherworks.  You can even order them assembled!  (Hint:  When ordering a vest for your child, the larger the better.  This way, they won’t grow out of them too quickly, and patches won’t have to be moved to a new vest).

We’re excited for your family to join us!  Please fill out the form below.  One of our Nation elders will contact you via phone to confirm your membership and will give you further instructions and information.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the Chief at or give us a call at (614) 441-8085.
