Quote" Our officers come from different tribes and backgrounds they are Tohono O`Odham, Navajo, Pima, Sac, Fox, Kiowa, Lakota, Sioux, Hopi, Omaha, Black Feet and Yurok".
I spent time with all the officers, and it was like a dream come true. To track with such great nations.
Some of the members were senior council members of their tribes, and afforded me with great honours.
They go on to say quote" The name Shadow Wolf was started several years ago when one of our officers designed a patch for us the Customs patrol Officers. The name came from one of our Supervisors who has since retired.
He was featured in a newspaper article, and that article called him shadow man. This was because when he was tracking smugglers he would sometimes come upon them without even knowing that he was following them. I then suggested to this officer that instead of the "wolf pack" name he was going to put on the patch be changed to " Shadow Wolf to honor him. This is how and why we are now starting to be known as the "Shadow Wolves" which I would rather be the original name of " Shadow Wolf"

They showed me how they shadow peope, and to this day on EVERY Shadowhawk course, there is someone chosen to shadow the new clients. It is a great honor to be chosen, and it takes practice to get it right, but perserverance pays, and its good to know that we are keeping a part of tracking tradition going.
The Shadow Wolves have two patches. They gave me both in a ceremony. There is the dress patch which is on the home page and the tactical patch on this page.
