You are instructed that any new Bands/Councils inside Abenaki Territory must be approved by the Grand Chief and all recognized Councils now in unity.
As for using Chief in your correspondence it is illegal as there are no chiefs in the Abenaki Territory existing councils only head spokesman. No one from Abenaki Territory appointed you Chief.
Please take this letter seriously as any further problems will be dealt with accordingly.
