and here is the testimony of my witnesses," handing over the Record.
The Chief of the Council calls out loudly: "Here . . . claims . . . and here is the evidence fully witnessed by . . . and ... all persons of good standing and able to speak with authority in this matter. The Committee has already looked into the case and endorsed the application, What is the pleasure of the Council?"
Some one rises and says: "O Chief, there can be no question of the justice of this claim. I move that it be allowed."
Another says: "I second that, O Chief." The Chief says: "Moved and seconded; all in favor say 'How,' contrary say 'Wah.' The 'Hows' have it, the claim is allowed."
The Chief then says: "In behalf of the Council I bestow on you this eagle feather or this degree badge as a symbol of your achievement."
This paper is now signed by the Chief in the chair and becomes the property of the recipient; a record of it in the Tally Book is all that the Tribe needs.
