This was an ecuinenical effort and involved all den- ominations on (he reserve. Jim Twig, layman, was the master of ceremonies at the church service. The Passion according to St. John was read. Chief Jim Shot on Both Sides, Bob Black Plume and Alphonse Many Gray Horses also spoke. Kev. McCuaig, an Anglican clergyman, says, "It made me realize just how much these people have to offer us." Indians took part. They fasted for two days; carried crosses; and prayed along the way. Roman Catholic priest Rev. J. Regnier, OMI, said it was "a truly humbling exper- ience." He says, "I learned a lot from these people, especially the older ones. It was their idea. They have a lot to teach us." The sacrifice walk is the traditional way of the natives to show humility and penance for the sacrifice of Christ at Easter time. They fasted from one to two days, canied crosses from each starting point and pray- ed along the way, a distance of 20 miles to the church. A starvation breakfeast of dry bread and tea was serv- ed before the services.

Says Mr. Whitehead; "My view is this, if there's a hot spot, and the area at Mossleigh is a hot spot for Hutterite expansion, then I feel the committee should advise the Hutterian brethren to look at equally good land somewhere else." The com- mittee, headed by Arnold W. Platt, a farmer, member of the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fome and former executive secretary of the United Farmers of Alberta, has given its approval for the Hutterite application by the Newdale colony at Queenstown to form a daughter colony in the Mossleigh area. Vulcan area residents, led by the Vulcan Chamber of Com- merce, are adamantly op- posed to the Hutterite ex- pansion.
