Much of what the prophets predicted has happened already or is occurring at present, the chief will face no objection from him. However, he does prefer a school with teachers chosen from the camp, who would be trained and supervised by other qualified native on the reserve. "And I think that the good life is for people to bring up their children the right way with discipline.

The camp's only white person, Rick Yellowbird's wife Karen "We don't dislike the peo- ple who use liquor, but liquor is what we don't like." Here the children and adults have found a peace of mind. "That's what we came look- ing for. We didn't come here looking for riches and money, but peace of mind, and we found it in our native cul- ture." The idea of moving off the reserve started in 1965 when Chief Small Boy and some of the other Indian elders at Hobbema reserve discussed the concept. In 1967 Chief Small Boy at- tempted to get mountain land near where the band is living now designated as Indian land. After a meeting with senior Indian affairs representatives located in Alberta, Chief Small Boy went to Edmonton and talked with various pro- vincial ministers about ob- taining land. Chief Small Boy was told in Edmonton to go to Ottawa where lie was in turn told to sec officials again in Edmon- ton and so on to obtain land. "They (federal govern- ment) told me that thsy could not steal land from the pro- vincial government" and the provincial government said approximately the same for the federal government, he said. Chief Small Boy decided that if anything were going to be done, the interested par- ties (both senior govern- ments) would have to come see him. And in 1968, he acted on his own and left. Since leaving (lie Hobbema reserve the group has moved its camp- site about 10 times.
