Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 7, THI LiTHMIDOf HMA10 Little Black Horse Society holds Indian Days at Brocket D'ARCY RICKARD photos. Melvin Big Throat, 20, a member of the Blood Indian band, his wife Lydia, and a little girl from Browning, Mont., named Theresa were among hundreds of visitors to the Peigan Indian Reserve's Indian at Brocket. The three-day affair was marred -by bad weather, except for the final day when the sun broke through the clouds. It was the first Indian Days to be sponsored by the Little Black Horse Society of the Peigan Indian Reserve. But it will be better next year Wind, rain mars Indian Days... Small Boy Dance Troupe performs chicken dances By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor BROCKET The Little Black Horse Society's Indian Days drew 17 teepees, 40 tents and about a dozen truck campers to an encampment en the Peigan Indian Reserve here. The Indians came from as far away as Browning, Mont., despite little publicity for the event The Small Boy Dance Troupe came from the break- away Indian tribe now sit- uated in the mountains west of Hobema under Chief Rob- ert Small Boy. They perform- ed native dances and sang in the Peigan Community Hall here. Dances are usually held outdoors but wind and rain marred the event. The Little Black Horse So- ciety, headed by Gordon McDougall, son of Peigan Chief Maurice McDougall, At phonse Little Mustache, Gil- bert Provost and James Knowlton, approached the band council to see if the so- ciety couW assist in any way with Indian Days. The band turned the whole thing over to the society. "Tins society comprises 30 to 35 said Gordon McDougall. "We are just sort of a take off from the orig- inal Black Horse Society." He says: "We had some .real good people come to per- form, especially the Small Boy Dance Troupe. They have a special dancing troupe and singers. "And we had the Little Black Horse Society give- away dance. "This is the first time we have endeavored to put on this show as the- Little Black Horse Society. For the first time, we did pretty good. We made some mistakes, which is natural, but we hope to cor- rect this and make it bigger and better next year." The Peigan Indian Reserve stretches 12 to 15 miles north and south and is about 20 miles long. The Oldman River runs through it. Many Peigara, without transportation, packed picnic baskets a.nd waited long distances to attend Indian Days. Some fine horses were in evidence. My family was more fortu- nate. We drove from Letb- bridge. ft was our first visit to tbe Peigan reserve. Tins reserve is another study in contrasts. Modern bouses stand beside slum dwellings. It te obvious many Indians on this reserve are living in poverty. 'Caught between a past that is gone forever and an un- certain future, Indians here are mightily striving to pull themselves up by their boot- straps. Economically, it's a hard struggle. We asked ope fellow if we could make 'a photo- graph of his wrinkled- face. "Five he said. "That's what we get at tbe Calgary Stampede."
