Elangomat Patch Set
Nimet Arrow Set
Central New Jersey Council
Sakuwit Lodge #2
Elangomat is the Lenni-Lenape word for friend. As Lodge Elangomat, the Scout has the opportunity to make the Order of the Arrow Ordeal experience more meaningful to the candidates. The Elangomat Award recognizes Lodge Elangomats who complete the following requirements:
a. Serves as an Elangomat on 2 occasions
b. Serves with the Brotherhood Testing team at one Lodge function.
Ref: google "Ask the Chairman - Role of the Elangomat"
NIMAT literally means "My Brother" in Lenni Lenape. A NIMAT is a Lodge brother (member) who helps other Scouts become members of the Order of the Arrow. The Nimat works with other Scouts, keeps in contact with the other Scouts, keeps a log of their activities, encourages them, helps with the Brotherhood ceremony, and more.

There is no official BSA Nimat award. Many OA Lodges create their own award programs to recognize various achievements or contributions. Some Lodges recognize brothers for their work in helping to get Ordeal brothers to attain Brotherhood honor. It is essentially an extended Elangomat effort.
