The Elangomat, from the Lenape word meaning friend or family member, heads a crew of candidates during the Ordeal, and follows up with his clan in the ten months following to encourage his clan's participation in the Lodge and prepare them for Brotherhood conversion.

Elangomat Resources

Dave Bennett has created a great Elangomat Manual. It explains all the terms such as clan, and offers a detailed description of the role of the Elangomats during the Ordeal, participation in the Pre-Ordeal and Ordeal ceremonies, and the relationship of the Elangomat (Nimat) to his crew (clan) after the Ordeal weekend is over.
