Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IT'S NOT TOO LATE for a Hawaiian Vacation For information and bookings call ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 320.3201 The LetKbtidge Herald SECOND SECTION Lellibridgc, Alberta, Friday, February 25, 1072 PAGES 13 TO 24 NOW IN OUR NEW LOCATION CECIL OXENBURY DISPENSING OPTICIANS LTD. 101 PROFESSIONAL BLDG. 740 41h AVE. S. I.ETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Ask aboul Photogruy The Icni that cticngej with thi ligbl- was born a thousand years ago, a culture of bows and arrows' Was 11 only yesterday thai men sailed around the moon? And is it tomorrow that they will stand tin its barren sur- face? You and 1 marvel that man should [ravel so far and so fast. Yet, if they have travelled far, then I have (ravelled fnr- Ilicr. If they have travelled fast, then I faster. For I was born a thousand years ago born in a eullu'-e of bows and arrows. But the span of half a life, f was flung across the ages [o the cul- ture of the atom bomb. And from bows and arrows lo the atom bomb is a distance far beyond a flight to the moon. 1 was born in an age that loved the things of nature and gave them beautiful names like Stanley Park. I was bora all people loved nature and spoke lo it as though it had a soul, I csn re- member going up Indian River with my father when I was very young. I can remember him watching Ihe sun light fires on Mount Pay-nay-nay as it rose above its peak. I can re- member him singing thanks to it as be often did. And then the people came. More and more people came. Like a crushing, rushing wave they came, hurling the years aside. Suddenly I found myself a young man in the midst of the 20th Century. I found myself and my peo- ple adrift in a new age but not part uf ii. Engulfed by its rushing tide, but only as a captive eddy, going round and round. On lit- tle reserves, on plols of land, we floated in a kind of grey of our cul- ture which you ridiculed, un- sure of who we were or where we were going. We were un- ccrlain of our grip on the pres- enl, weak in our hope for the future. And that is where we pretty well sland today. f had a glimpse of something better than this. For a few brief years, I knew rny people when we lived the old life. I knew them when there was still a dignity in our lives and a feeling of worth in our outlook. I knew them when there was unspoken confidence in the home and a certain knowledge of the path we walked upon. But we were living on the dying energy of a dying culture that was slowly losing ils forward thrust. He was two hours late in arriving, but Chief Dan George left a message with bis audience ol teachers and guests that they will not soon forget. Chief George, an leader from Vancouver, was featured speaker at a banquet for the South- weslern Alberta Teachers' Association annual con- vention Thursday night. His speech had so much impact that The Herald lias decided to publish it in its entirety. I think if was the suddenness it all that hurt us so. We did not have time to adjust lo the slartling upheaval around us. We did not liave lime lo take your 20th Century pro- gress and eat il, little by little, and digest it. It was force feed- ing from the start and our stomach turned sick. Do you know what it is like to be without mooring? Do you know what it is like to live in surroundings thai are ugly and everywhere you look you see ugly things, strange things? It depresses man because man must be surrounded by the bcanliful if lus soul is lo grow. What did we see in the new surroundings you brought us? Laughing faces, pitying faces, conniving faces. Faces that rid- iculed, faces that stole from us. If is no wonder we turned lo Ihe only people who did not steal and who did not sneer, who came with love. They were t b e missionaries and they came with love. And I for one will ever rctnm Uiat love. Do you know what it is like to feel you are of no value io society and those around you? DD you know what it is like lo have your race belittled and lo learn that you arc only a burden to your country? Maybe we did not have the skills lo make a meaningful contribution, but no one would waif for us to catch up. And now you hold out your band and beckon me to come across the street. Come and integrate you say. But how can 1 come? I am naked and ashamed. How can I come in dignity? 1 have no presents, 1 have no gifls. Whet is there in my cul- ture you value? My poor trea- sure you can only scorn. Am I then to come as a beg- gar and receive all from your omnipotent hand? Somehow. 1 must wait. I must delay, f must find myself. I must find my treasure. I must wait unlil you want something of me, until you need some- thing that is me. Then, 1 can raise my head and say lo my wife and family, "Listen, they are calling. They nerd me. f must go." Then f can walk across the slrest and 1 will hold my head high for I will meet you as an equal. I will not scorn you for your demeaning gifts r.nd you will not receive me in pity. Pily 1 can do without my manhood I cannot do without. I shail not come as a cring- ing object of your pily. I shall come in dignity or I shall not come at all. What we want first of all is to Ire respected and to feel we are people of worth. We w.'ail an equal opportnnily to succeed in life, but cannot succeed on your terms. We need specialized help in education, help in (he formalive years special courses in English and guid- ance counselling. We need equal job opportuni- ties for our graduates, other- wise our sludents will lose courage and ask what is the use of it all. Let no one forget il. We are a people with special righls guaranteed lo 115 by promises and trealies. We do not beg tor these rights, nor do we thank you. We not (hank you for them lie- cause paid for Ihcm, and the price we paid was cxhorbi- tant. We paid for Ihcm with our culture, our dignily and self respect. We paid until we be- csme a beaten race, paveily- slricken and conquered. But yon have Idnd, and I know (bat in your heart you wish you could help. 1 v, o.nder if there is much you can do, and jet there is a lot you can do. When you meet my children in ycur classroom, respect each one for what be is a child of our Father in heaven, and your brother. Maybe it all boils down to just that. CHIEF DAN GEORGE Indian and white integration expected within four generations By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Indian society integrated viflr within Ihe ncxL vil) b while fully- sociuLy three to four generations, Chief Dan George said in Lethbridpe Thursday. But Indians will retain Ihcir culture. Chief George said Lhc best way for Indian society lo grmv together v.ilh while society is through integrated schools. Integrated schooling is re- quired lo ensure the Indian existence in a while dominat- ed society, he said. caji learn to respect Ihcir na- tive friends. One of Ihe major problems in today's integrated education system Ls that native and while children do not blend together enough at schools. During a press conference, Chief George said the rapid ajid overwWming confronta- tion of Indian? by a highly- technical and socially different white society has led lo the current problems suffered by many Indian people. Indians were expected in a few gcncrciions to adopt the social mores and values which took white society centuries lo Indians require the same so- socrei dal and technical skills as hc ,s.ald: (heir while counlerparLs to sur- live cost Ihe native people greatly Cliicf George said school in- tegration mils! occur at an early age, so whiUj children as far as self respect and pride were concerned. Tho rapid changeover is not complete and the transition period is still causing contusion. He urged Indian commun- ities near heavily populated while areas to take charge of their affairs like a munici- pality. Indian people living in re- mote rorlhern areas should continue to live off Ihe land, if the resources are available arid if they feel lhat is the way they want to live, said Chief George. Indian and white societies should exchange Ihe best of thsir cultures, he said. Although an advocale of an integrated school system, Chief George wants Indian people (o their identity "with retain pride." Chief Gtargc said Indian costume for special occasions is a method of preserving pride of heritage in the same wav as ,r other Canadians such as' the cial boll Scots exhibit pride in their ancestry.

New education techniques need critical evaluation By RICHARD BURKE Slall Writer educating techniques must be more critically eval- uated lhan they have been in the past, Dr. liver Horowitz, dean-elect o[ (he faculty of edu- cation at the University of AI- berla said Thursday. Whenever a new program is instituted, teachers must begin asking "embarrassing qucs- lions" lo determine Ihe validity of the new technique, Dr. said. He was ndressing about 500 southwestern Alberta teachers at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- slilute attending the two-day convention.
