Drive Ph. 328-7751 Chief Small Boy's Indian Band is in wilderness camp 6to stay' By BILL HUNT With RUDY IIAUGENEDEK Staff Writer MUSK1KI LAKE I've eaten with them, slept in their tents which arc .extremely clean. They use while sheets and pillowcases, and I think they are living a far better life than many Indians on the re- serves. The point of my trip was to see how these Indian people lived. It's been a wonderful per- sonal experience and they've shown me that they are alive and happy with their way of life. I've read articles which stats these people practice witchcraft, complete with evil witch doctors. This type of story displays only inaccur- ate reporting and the sensa- tionalism the media is fre- quently accused of. People here go to hospitals when they are ill and live a similiar but improved life to that of Indian people living on federal reserves. They are a happy people who purchase, with cash, the necessities they cannot pro- vide themselves but they provide for themselves every- thing they can. When my wife and child and I drove into this camp we were not treated in an un- friendly fashion although the people here may have had an excuse to do so from pre- vious news media exper- iences. As Chief Robert Small Boy stated: no discrimination is evident here and all people are treated as guests no mat- ter what their race or ethnic origin. Chief Small Boy has air fempted to lead liis people away from the corruptions of white society such as alco- stealing, swearing and lying. From the information I have gathered and from per- sonal experiences, I can hon- estly say the people here have abopted workable new prin- ciples of life. Having seen children run- ning about without the heavy clothes normally worn on cool fall days it would be fair to say the dietary and health patterns followed by these people are better than those practiced by people residing in urban areas. These children are probably the healthiest looking I have ever seen, and they are also well-behaved. Counter to the stories that may appear in many publica- tions, their accommodations are good. The tents have w o o a e n frames and doors. Many have heavy carpets on the floors. Parents teach their children tile 3Rs reading, writing and arithmetic. A child reaches adulthood at about age 16. However the duties of youths near adulthood do not change considerably after they have attained their new status. Many of the band members said they were confused by white man's religion. That re- ligion, they claim, has too many denominations, each us- ing the same book of God, but each claim i n g superiority over the other. Although they are not as aware of what is happening in the world as their counter- parts "outside" they know and point to the religious strife in Ireland as an exam- ple of the contradicfions in white society. They worship the "Great Spirit" who, in essence, is the same as the Christian God without the extra trimmings. Band medicine men the camp elders provide spri- tual guidance and medical as- sistance. Any serious ail- ments are dealt with by pro- fessional doctors at commu- nities nearby. wouldn't trade any- thing for this type of sums up the feeling of the band members about contin- uing their wilderness home. All members treat each other with a great deal of respect and understanding trait they feel is lost among urban dwellers. Chief Small Boy wants a parcel of land the band can eall its own preferably in the area it now occupies. The Indians want a chance to live the life they have se- lected. A parcel of land would erase the anxieties some feel about some day being forced off land they don't cause of the whim of some vote-seeking politician. And they're here to stay. A good wood supply is necessary for warmth in the wilderness.
