The Improved Order of Red Men (IORM) is a national fraternal organization that traces its origins back to 1765, to the Sons of Liberty. These early colonial patriots patterned their activities after the great Iroquois Confederacy and its democratic body, with elected representatives governing tribal councils. Following in their footsteps, today’s IORM uses names, terminology and rituals modeled after native Americans, as they herald the organization's motto of “freedom, friendship, and charity”. The local IORM group (Egg Harbor City Kickapoo tribe) gets together on the 1st Thursday of each month to share a simple meal and then conduct normal business meeting activities. We strive to participate in community events and support charitable causes. New members are always welcome, so anyone interested in getting more information about us or joining the organization should contact Kickapoo Chief of Records at 609-226-3812.
