Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta RICKARD photo. Learning what belongs to them Indian youth, like this young fellow with an armful of wood for the kitchen stove, are learning about their own cultural heritage. Everyone gets a chance to sing, 'dance and drum at Indian Days programs. Sun Dance on way out? By SHERLEEN HUNTER Special Correspondent CARDSTON Darryl (Kimba) McDonald will never have to wonder about the tra- ditions of his forefathers be- cause he is growing up in those traditions culturally. Kimba. started al- most as soon as he could walk. His mother, Mrs. Bar- bara McDonald, says be started dancing at about 18 months and entered bis first competition aa years at Browning, Mont., where he took third prize. Now at five years of age he Is an accomplished dancer and has been all over the TJ.S. and tins country to com- pete. When be was years old be was a special guest for the International Students at Calgary. Today the Indian youth, like Kimba, have a chance to grow up knowing their tradi- tional culture, thanks to new courses in the school. They also practice their owa culture in the form of danc- ing, singing and drumming at pow wows and Indian Days programs. The music has been hand- ed down through the genera- tions and is always kept the same. Every song and dance step has meaning and significance. Each part of the costume also has a meaning and the young people learn this mean- ing. They make then: own ccstumes, costumes that were very much in evidence at Standoff this year. The Indian people have al- ways, had a once-a-year so- cial gathering, combined with religion, in the form of the Sun Dance. Dwindling interest in the traditional religion, and there- fore the Sun Dance, caused the elders of the tribe to feel that, another kind of social gathering was needed; the feeling being that strong cul- tural and social ties mean strong family and tribal ties and therefore kss delinquen- cy and other problems. Indian Days provides a newly developing tradition, being only cix years old, in the form of a social gath- ering combined with old cul- ture. It saves for future genera- tions a culture tint has en- dured for many hundreds of years.
