1." 1) I need to get Native American Craftsperson certification from the tribe so I can sell some of my crafts in addition to the shirts. This will have to be done through the tribe as well. Please instruct me as to how to get this started. 2) I will, upon approval, use the logo as is - no unauthorized changes will be made to the image provided to me. 3) I will add the words "Pauwau" and / or "Cultural Festival" and / or "Indian People" to the shirts and other items at my discretion. 4) All costs and profits concerning this venture are my responsibility. The tribe is under no financial obligation, neither are any revenues assured to the tribe other than the annual pauwau vendor fee. 5) I will apply as a vendor and pay the same rate as other Waccamaw vendors for the pauwau. 6) The shirts and other items with the Waccamaw logo may be sold at other events at my discretion."
