Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 13 TNI IFTWBRIB6B HERALD Salurday, Aujuil 55, 1970 Breakaway Indians Happy In New Camp J. J. JL (CD -A rbq- grrl iiflle bawi of Indians who foresook the coinlorts of civili- r.afion to live like Uieif furo- fnthcr.s arc entering their third year in the Rocky Mountain unkierness. Jt in the summer of that Chief Robert Smallboy, now 74, led about 151) members of his ISrmineskin Rand away from their reserve at Hobbema, 43 miles south of Edmonton. They settled on (lie Kootenay Plains, 100 miles southwest of tiic Alberta capital. "We want to get our people away from the temptations of liquor and was the simple explanation given to a visiting rcjinrler Hus week by Lazarus Roan, BO, Ilin first lieutenant of Chief Smallboy. The reporter was impressed by the happiness of most mem- bers of the band in their camp of white tents, an old teepee and assorted vehicles near two O'clock Ur'eek just off the hard- top David Thompson Highway, which links the Kootenay Plains with the mining town of Nordegg 45 miles to the east.

In another move toward in- dependence, the group has set up their own store. This has avoided Ilio former welfare payments and the Indian af- fairs department has assisted in (he move. NO I'ltUSSUUU Although their shifting from camp to camp within a recrea- tion and wilderness area like the Kootenay Plains has been a contravention of park regula- tions, there has been no gov- ernment pressure on the band. Both federal and provincial authorities have been ignoring the situation, apart from re- ceiving Smallboy's repeated re- quests for a new reserve for his people. Mr. Roan said lumbering pos- sibilities in the Muskiki Lake area, west along the Brazei River, could provide an incon for the band. Last year t working men were employe on the clearing of tlie Bigho Dam reservoir to the west. B this year there has been litt employment.
