47ALL MEMBERS OF BANDS/CLANS MUST BE MEMBERS OF SECCI



There are currently 11 bands/clans in nine districts.  The Chief of Bands represents these bands before the Council.  Contact him to form a new band, to disband and to register changes in band leadership.  He will work with the Tribal Web-Master to keep this page up to date.  When a band in formation is choosing a name, please consult the Tribal Registrar and the Chief of Bands & Clans.  Than Annual Band Report will be filed with the Chief of Bands early in Januray.  He will forward a copy to the Tribal Registrar.

To become an official band, you must have ten members of SECCI, elect a chief and other officers as needed, and choose a name in consultation with the Chief of Bands.  At this point you will be considered a band "in formation".  When you have held meetings, then petition the SECCI Council through Chief Panther for full band status.  Copies of the band petition should be sent to Chief of Bands & Clans and the Tribal Registrar.  (The tribal registrar is listed under the "contacts" page)  All bands operate under the bylaws of SECCI and file an annual membership report/income-expense statement with the Chief of Bands & Clans each year to remain active.

BANDS ARE  REQUESTED TO REMIT A $25.00 ANNUAL FEE to the Tribe to help defray operating expenses not covered by other revenues.  Bands are also asked to participate in raising money for the Scholarship Fund each year.

BLACK WOLF WARRIOR ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to a lack of participation, dedication and the lack of enough young and/or physically fit people to perform the duties of the Black Wolf Warrior Socity, (as to serve and protect the Tribe,) the Black Wolf Warrior Society has been dissolved as of October 4, 2010, until such time as there is enough genuine dedication and interest from the people to re-instate it.

Guards for the Tribal Grounds and Ceremonies will be selected from the general membership in attendance for each gathering.

The design for the Black Wolf Warrior regalia belongs to the SeCCI and from this point, NO ONE is authorized to wear it for any reason.

Principal Chief Vivian Panther Lawson
