The First Grand Chief was Kangee Mapiya, The Great Founder, he unified the warring tribes of North America into one nation to counter the European invaders. The Native Americans were succesfully unified and managed to expel the Europeans from much of their lands.
The Grand Chief is purely elected by destiny. The Council of Elders acts as regent when there is no Grand Chief and they announce the next Grand Chief. Until recently every name of every single Native American Person above the age of 18 is put on a piece of paper into a very large vase, the Supreme Elder takes one of the papers out and this person is officially elected as the new Grand Chief. However, this is no longer feasible, so now a computer randomly chooses a name. This person is regarded as The Chosen One, elected purely by destiny and the will of the spirits.
The person in question must meet following requirements to qualify for the position of Grand Chief:
- The person is older than the age of 18
- The person is a Native American or one of his/her parents is a Native American
- The person must have never have commited any grave crimes
- The person must be mentally and physically able to perform his or her duties
- The person is a member of one of the 12 tribes
There is no fixed term length, Grand Chiefs usually hold their position until they die or become seriously sick. The Grand Chief may also voluntarily abdicate if they want so.
