Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IfTHMIDOt Prisoners teach pupils Eskimo art, language YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) Grade 6 students at St. Patrick's elementary school have been given a unique learning opportunity. They are being taught the fundamentals of Eskimo lan- guage and art by five Eskimo at the Yellow- knife Corrections Centre. The program originated with principal Sister Annette, who wanted the children to learn more about Indian and Eskimo lifestyles. She began by sending a group of Grade 4, 5 and 6 stu- dents icefishing and on a trip to Indian Village. The tours were so successful that Sister Annette decided to extend the lessons to cover the Eskimo culture. She got in touch with the corrections centre, where it was agreed several Eskimo men would make a trial visit to tie school. That visit was at the end of March. The Appa, Pe- taulassie, Eegeevudloo and Henry to visit the school weekly. They have taken pains to prepare their lessons. All sto- ries used in the classes were written by Henry Evaluard- juak and translated. They were then copied so each child could have one. Drawings accompanying the stories served to teach the children everyday Eskimo vords- Soapstone Sister Annette said it is sur- prising how quickly the stu- dents have picked up the sight and sounds of the Eskimo lan- guage. During the first session, which dealt with the funda- Waltzing Matilda may be new Aussie anthem NEW DELHI (Reuter) Australia's new national an- them will probably be Waltzing Matilda, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam said here tonight. Whitlam, in an interview on Indian television, said his forecast was based on the proportion of "pro-Ma- tilda" suggestions coining in from the Australian pub- lic to the government. A competition is currently under way in Australia to find a new anthem to re- place God Save the Queen. mentals of the language and syllables, the prisoners drew illustrations on the blackboard throughout the instruction and reading. The program was expanded in subsequent sessions to in- volve three con- tinuing with funda- mentals and syllables, the second learning the funda- mentals of art, and the thtfi group of students being taught the art of soapstone carving. The Eskimo men brought their own rough-cut soap- stone. "Pick a nice soft they muttered, as each child chose a piece. Eegeevudloo and Moses showed the chil- dren the first steps of soap- stone caning. A few quick motions with a hammer and the basic out- lines of a seal, fish or bear were made for the students to work on. From the filing to the steel wool to the handrub- bing stages, the children worked under the prisoners' guidance. As they worked, they were told that the early Eskimos had no paper on which to write then- thoughts and feel- ings, so they found pieces of soft rock and made carvings. Over the centuries, these carvings developed more and more as an art. Always smile The program appears to have been of benefit to the in- structors as well as the chil- dren. "Look at the faces of the kids and the said Bill Levac, a correctional officer at the centre, one of those in- volved in directing the pro- gram. "They are always smil- ing. "Eskimos have a fine way with children. "They are finding them- selves useful and the tods are obviously enjoying the weekly sessions." There is an interpreter with the group, although several of the Eskimos can speak a little English. Mr. Levac pointed to Moses. "Theres a man who cannot speak English, but he's here he said. "He's communciating with the stu- dents with his hands instead of his voice." Sister Annette said the pro- gram has been a great suc- cess. "The Grade 5 children can hardly wait to become a part of the program next year. It is our hope that the program will go for the full year start- ing next fall." Asked if it was not taking too much time away from, normal studies, she said: "This is the best form of ed- ucation that the children can receive."
