The club are a whites only motorcycle club.

The term “Peckerwood” is often used as a derogatory term in the deep south of the USA in the early 20th century. It describes someone who is white, most likely poor and undereducated. The word is a reversal of the bird name “Wood Pecker”, of which a variety has red on the belly. The reversal, as can be seen in the Peckerwoods patch has the red on it’s neck, indicating it is a redneck.

Members of the Peckerwoods ride Harley Davidson motorcycles and have vests which often include patches of the iron cross and SS bolts.
