All are under the Chief. All disputes, etc., are settled by the Chief and Council. They administer the laws and enforce punishments.
VOW OF THE HEAD CHIEF
(To be signed with his name and totem in the tally-book.)
I solemnly promise to maintain the laws and to see fair play in all the doings of the Tribe.
VOW OF EACH BRAVE ON JOINING
(To be signed with the name and totem of each in the tally-book.)
I solemnly promise that I will obey the Chief and Council of my Tribe, and if I fail in my duty I will surrender to them my weapons, and submit without murmuring to their decision.
1. Don't rebel. Rebellionagainst any decision of the Council is punishable by expulsion by expulsion. Absolute obedience is always enforced.
2. Don't kindle a wild fire. To start a wild fire— that is, to set the woods or prairies afire — is a dreadful crime against the State, as well as the Tribe. Never leave a fire in camp without some one to watch it.
