The High Chief has the final say, and his dwelling reflects his status.
Tribal structure relies on everyone knowing his place and recognizing where power is vested. The tribal sub-chiefs need a supreme leader to bring them together, to be a voice for his people. The High Chief fulfills this role, acting as father to his tribe with, if he is wise, the guidance of the medicine men and older warriors.
Historically, tribal leaders were the key in determining tribal policies, especially towards the invading Europeans. King Philip's War of 1675-6 seems to have been the result of Metacom (or "King Philip" as the English settlers called him) realizing that trading tribal lands for goods was the height of folly, despite what previous leaders had done.
