The Kibbo Kift Kindred (not to be confused with other organisations with the achronynm KKK) was formed in 1920 by the commercial artist, writer and pacifist John Hargrave, who became disillusioned the militaristic leanings of the Boy Scout movement. Hargrove formed a new group based on naturalist principles with a social,economic and spiritual philosophy. An original mystical-medieval-modernist style emerged fusing Egyptian, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Native American styles.
