E. CROSS WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN Native Women's Group To Push South Membership Close on the heels of the opening Sunday of the Leth- bridge Friendship Centre may come an expansion in the south of the Voice of Alberta Native Women's Society. Rase Yellow Feet, director of the centre, is also the southern Nice-president of the old oganization of Metis lieaty and non-treaty Indians. Attending the Indian Associa- tion of Alberta annual meeting in Standoff Wednesday, Mrs. Yellow Feet said representa- tion in the women's group has been "very poor" from the south. Currently there are about 25 members from the Blood and Peigan Reserves. Mrs. Yellow Feet said she plains to hold meetings for the two reserves in an effort to in- crease membership. The society is to open its own office in Edmonton Mon- day. The Human Resources De- velopment Authority June 24 is to be asked for finanacial backing by the society for full- time family counsellors in all native communities. The socie- ty would agree lo co-ordinate counselling facilities across the province. The required .by the society would hopefully be shared by the provincial gov- ernment, Alberta Native Com- munications Society and the In- dian Association of Alberta. The society presented an ex- tensive brief May 14 to the Worth Commission on Educa- tional Planning, and in 19C8, 153 members demonstrated in Ed- monton against federal govern- ment reduction in health care for indigents. ROSE YELLOWFEET calls for boost Ottawa Said On Indians' Land Control Million Educational Community Indian Centre Model Unveiled A paper released at the In- dian Association of Alberta's annual meeting in Standoff this week, accuses the federal gov- ernment of being "ignorant" about Indians' control of their lands. The paper, a comparison be- tween the Red Paper and tne government's White Paper on Indian policy, says the gov- ernment "wrongly thinks that Indian Reserve lands are owned by the Crown." The Red Paper position is that the lands are "Ireld" by the Crown but are owned fully by Indians. The statement is made in connection with the govern- ment proposal that control of Indian lands "be transferred to the Indian people." The Red Paper, submitted to the government two weeks ago in Ottawa, also suggests the government makes an error when it assumes control of land must take the form of "usual property" ownership. "Control of Indian land should be maintained by In- dian people, respecting their historical and legal rights as Indians." The White Paper's recom- mendation that "lawful obliga- tions be recognized" is also taken to task by the Red Paper. "It is obvious the govern- ment has never bothered lo learn what the treaties are and has a distorted picture of them Lawful obligations, includ- ing those concerned with abor- iginal rights, unfulfilled prom- ises and treaty provisions, should be recognized." Also queried is the federal government's stand that ser- vices for all Canadians should Trudeau Committed To Indians Prime Minister Trtideau's words "we'll not force any so- lution on you" during the pre- sentation of the Indian counter- proposals to the federal gov- ernment White Paper on In- dians was the turning point in the feelings of the Indian dele- gation to Ottawa, Walter Dci- ter, president of the National Indian Brotherhood, said Wednesday. He told about 400 delegates to the 26th annual convention of the Indian Association of Al- berta Mr. Trudeau practically committed himself and his cab- inet to work for the Indian people.

The Red Paper, compiled bj the IAA, also 'rejects a repea of the Indian Act. "It is essen tial to review it, but not before the question of treaties is set tied." Indians do agree that the de- partment of Indian affairs would be wound up, "in its present archaic and pater- nalistic form." However, where the White Paper recommends matters relating to Indians be trans- ferred to "appropriate federa the Red Paper makes other suggestions. The Red Paper recommends the establishment of a smaller federal Indian agency "re- sponsible primarily for ensur- ing that the Queen's (Victoria) promises with respect to treat- ies and lands be kept." The Red Paper also jects the appointment of a sole claims adjusting commission- "because he has been ap- pointed without consultation and by the government itself. 'The government should now, in consultation with the Indians, implement its cam- paign promise to establish an jidependent, unbiased and un- prejudiced commiss ion. It should have the power to call 'or any witnesses or docu- ments that it, or the Indians, wish. Its judgments should be binding." Three more position papers are expected to emanate from Alberta association this year, said Harold Cardinal, resident of the IAA.

The Indian Association of Alberta plans to spend this year to develop and improve reserves in the province. The budget, for the year end- ing next March 31, and a blue- print for improvement of re- serve life were presented Wcd- nesday to 400 delegates attend- j ing the association's 26th an- nual meeting. Most of the money will come from federal grants. In IE a working budget of less than President Harold Association of Alberta's conven- tion. Hoy Piepenbiirg of Edmon- ton, consultant on educational research for the IAA, told dele- gates the aims of the develop- ment would be social, cultural and rehabilitative. The community, to be built in Alberta in five years, would have a population of with programs from day care to Grade 12 in addition to adult education facilities. The curriculum will be In- dian-oriented and planned not to duplicate existing educa- tional systems. A council chamber, shaped in the form of the traditional tee- p e e, would accommodate 600 persons and be used for meet- ing of the 42 chiefs in Alberta. The plan calls for 42 offices in the inner circle of the main building lo house a permanent officer from each reserve. The eight principal language groups in the province will each have an office for instruc- tion. Native people will be able to learn their own traditional language or another native lan- guage. There will be museum dis- plays to depict the history of each language group. Outside the language area will be nine resource rooms, housing a library, audi-visual equipment, tape recorders, and the multi-media equipment for a modern approach to teach- ing.

A medicine man lodge will be built to teach traditional In- dian religion, folk ways and riTOres. This will provide for a continuation of the traditional Indian life. Built around the ceremonial area in the centre, three build- ings for a library, administra- tion and accommodations for visitors and start-course stu- dents will also provide seating for thousands to watch pow wows and dances in the cere- monial circle.

"F e w reserves in the prov- ince have been able to benefit fully under the provincial scheme because of economic inequity of reserves compared to the non-native society." He said the native identity must be developed from the reserve level in order to en- courage native "re-generation" with pride and dignity.
