Request from the Tribal Council
Questions came up regarding specifics of the project and we posted a clarification on Tribal Council Donations. As mentioned on the clarification, the information shared did not come officially from the Tribal Council but from a very reliable source, who was requested by the council to submit the information to be published on this blog. Our inquiry into the matter prompted three (3) members of the tribe to canvass for prices and to write yet another letter of clarification which was scanned and is posted here (please click on photo to enlarge).
Our source stated the following:
“Hello,attached here is the updated price list, of the items mentioned on the TRIBAL OFFICER’S REQUEST. Three  officers of the organization ,went to Baguio yesterday to verify prices of the mentioned items,and they came up with this[see letter].As i write this,the vice-chieftain is at my side and checking what is being written,he also reviewed what was posted before regarding the number of gongs and the amount pledged by uncle Henry,he (the vice-chieftain)found NO MISTAKE ON THE INFORMATION FORWARDED BEFORE! However,as you can see, the actual price is very much higher than what was told them before.”
“From my own investigations and research, the price quoted in their new letter are within the price range and the going rate for such items. It is the Tribal Council’s goal to attain this amount before the Grand Re-Union in December 2008 and they are counting on us all to help in any way we can.”
