D., aug. 4 tha old Sioux in the Days when they ruled the great Plains had a festival that Combine in theme Sev eral of the White Man s holidays. It was called the Sun dance and indians came by horse and Wagon to the indians it was Christmas on foot or in beaten up Automo in gratitude for their Safe return from Korea. To purify and prepare them selves the three first took a sweat Bath in an or sweat House ripened when new Sage sprouts made of Willow bows covered with Buffalo skins. Steam was provided by pouring water Over hot rocks in a pit within the sweat House. The dancers were then sent out the Call. Thousands for the Sun Blue for the sky.

They pitched their modern tents and faded Tepee around a in those times b the wandering enclosure of Willow poles Sioux bossed the land and chased the Buffalo from Kansas to Canada from the Mississippi River to the Rocky mountains. But once a year the roving tribes men came together and were knit into a nation by the Sun dance a ceremonial that symbolized their Unity and common Faith in the great spirit. The government in an Effort to destroy a tradition which it feared always held the danger of stirring tip the fierce Sioux in fresh out Breaks banned the Sun dance in 1886. But it was revived More than 20 years ago and last week indians came hundreds of Miles to the sprawling Pine Ridge Reserva Tion Here for a renewal of the symbolic centuries old festival. In earlier times no formal Date for the ceremony was set. The indians simply drifted together As if pulled by a Magnet by nature s the time when the Buffalo were fat when the choke berries Hung with Green Pine boughs. In the Center of the enclosure stood a slender Young Cottonwood tree. The tree selected in and Vance by a Medicine Man had been carried to the site and erected by Strong braves who took care to see that none of its leaves touched the ground. To the Sioux the leaves of this sacred tree stood for human hearts and not be bruised. Shears of Sweet smelling standing for placed in the Crotch. Prom them dangled a piece of Buffalo Robe and a Man shaped figure Cut from a piece of Buffalo skin symbolizing the Sioux dependence on the Buffalo. The Sun dance itself is designed to demonstrate the four great Sioux generosity Forti tude and integrity. This year three Young braves volunteered for the ordeal. Two were veterans who had pledged themselves to perform a Sun dance yellow for the rocks Green for the i Earth. Without food or water the three men then danced around the cot Lom Vood tree to the music of beat Tom Toms and the eerie High pitched chants of singers. The danced in turn in the direction o. The four winds pausing Only when the Tom Tom beaters had to rest i watched the dance for part of each Day but to me the dance monotonous in itself was less in cresting than the faces of the old indians and their squaws on the sidelines. They wore a look of mingled Pride Mystic exultation and sad Ness. To them this was no dance of was the pageant of Mankind s terrible struggle to survive a Victory of Man s spirit Over All the enemies meets in his Brief life under a blazing Sun.
