The Pa-Hin Lodge officially was formed in 1977, after discussion in 1976, combining four existing lodges in the Northern Lights Council into a single Lodge. From 1977 - approximately 1980, the former lodges continued to conduct operations as tribes (example: the Thunderbird Tribe), holding conclaves and OA events along the old Lodge lines. Around 1980, the tribes structure was dis-established by the Northern Lights Council. The Lodge Currently (as of 2012) has a total of 10 Chapters spanning 2 Timezones (Central and Mountain), 4 States (MT,ND,SD,MN) and approximately 74 Counties. The 2011 roster count was over 500 registered members.
Pa-Hin is headquartered in Fargo, ND at the Jon L. Wanzek Center for Scouting.
