What is their potential? We don't know because so many are disadvantaged they fail to realize it. Miss Natalie Faye Crow Eagle 16, a Peigan of Brock- et, would like to be a teach- er. Born at Brocket Aug. 9, 1956, she has four brothers and two sisters. "I am not too much at sports but the best of all." Natalie quit school at 15. She was in Grade 8 at the F. P. Walshe School at Fort Macleod, about 20 miles from her home. There are prob- lems. For example, it's hard to get a ride home if you want to take part in after- school sports. She likes base- ball and riding horses. But Natalie has made up T-ind to go back to school ptember. Mrs. Lynne Prairie Chick- en and Miss Leona White Cow, both of Brocket, are sur- mounting similar problems. DELINQUENCY Meanwhile, a project to combat juvenile delinquency on the Blood Indian Reserve is gaining momentum with the help of Dave Collis of the RCMP and Blood Band Scout" Camille Russell. It all started last Novem- ber when an action commit- tee was formed. Its purpose: combat juvenile delinquency in the Moses Lake (near i Cardston) area of the re- serve. The department of Indian affairs was petitioned for funds for a building. Kainai Industries will construct the youth drop-in centre building. It will be located in the Moses Lake area of the re- serve. Tins will allow leaders to work extensively with Indian youth, many of whom are idle and without constructive guidance of any kind.
