oversight, criminal activities, non-compliance to funding agreement terms and conditions without
recourse, poor business planning & management, no long-term community plan, no long-term financial
plan and unmanageable debt financing regimes has effectively placed this community in a position of
being unable to deliver essential programs and services due to its limited financial ability and resources."

|Although the word "chief" in english has become widely associated with indigenous peoples,
The word is actually much older than the Europeans arrival in North America.
It is derived from the Latin word "kaput," which meant "head."
Like most English words derived from Latin, "chief" came to us by way of French, which explains
why it is so similar to "chef," which is short for "chef de cuisine," meaning "head of the kitchen."
