Ideally, the chief’s seat should be more ornately decorated than the other seating areas built with an ornamental back of lattice work or rustic folk, for example. This is a term that has been used traditionally in native America. It has odd birds, which contribute to the council ring’s distinct primitive appearance and feel. The chief is in charge of all tribal members’ morale and welfare programs. He officiates at funerals, marriages, and other social and family occasions. He participates in community projects such as public schools, fire departments, police departments, community safety programs, community health programs, and little leagues by attending community meetings. When his tribal mates are in the hospital, he pays them a visit.
