The Improved Order of Red Men is a fraternal organization established in 1834. Their rituals and regalia are modeled after those assumed to be used by Native Americans. The organization claimed a membership of about half a million in 1935, but has declined to a little more than 15,000. (Submitted on December 15, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
