Premier Harry Strom, speak- ing to 1110 delegates and ob- servers to Ihe Indian Associa Jon of Alberta Development Conference Thursday said, 'my first concern is the ques- ion of what kind of- a relation- ship ib (he Mian people want with their governments some mderstanding of what they arc trying lo achieve.

"The second concern involve the question of Uw relationsli: of the federal and provinci; governments with the India people." He said a concern is th question of the Indian people identity and the relationship I the rest of society. The Indian people, by the1 vigorous pursuit of cconomi and cultural development, hav indicated Iheir intention lo lak advantage of some of the bcnp fits society has to offer, but i is far from clear what kind o a mix between these two 5d (their heritage and the value: of modern society) the Indian people want, "This question will largely determine both tbe quality ant the quantity of governmen 3articipation in Indian af he said. "If ihe Indians fee! their cul .ure would be compromised by '.h? large scale pursuit of tech Jological skills, it would be useless for the government to aunch a major program de- signed to make opportunities to acquire technological skills available to the Indian people."

"We like lo think of It as dealing with individuals and this is where we accomplish our goals." Social Problems Problem For All EDMONTON (Staff) velopmental problems can't be departmentalized, said Ton; Pearson, special assistant lo Federal Health Minister John iUunru. He told 180 delegates and ob- servers to the Indian Associa- tion of Alberla Development Conference, social and econo- mic problems are all one human problem and should be treated as such. The department of national Neallh and welfare is responsi- ble for health services but "we can't raise (he lieallh level in depressed area by ourselves. "If a water supply is pol- luted, sanitation is poor, and the general health of the com- munity is not good, the most modern hospital will not raise .he health level." Co-operation between Indian communities and government s needed to get human de- velopment as it should be. Mr. Pearson said ths fact rAA is willing to liold 'd confer- ence means the Indian still lias some belief in co-operation alter 300 years of talking. He said this conference will en- lance the prospect of a power transfer with a change n the basis of Indian priori- ies. "We owe 3'ou Ihe tools lor the hange-over and we are doing he said. "The new nursing station of Habay is being built by Indian people who will own it and then, in (urn, rent it to the gov- enimenl. The people will es- tablish the policy of Hie sta- tion." He sakl medical services were being aimed at preven- tive measures "Examples arc the dental field, an education lilm library, health education stressing hygiene, and com- munity aide programs, he said. In answer to a question from the Blood Indian Hesera spokesman Howard Beebec, Mr. Pearson said hospital ser- vices on the reserves must bo decentralized to get Hie most medical service to the most peop.l.5. He said a complete co-ordi- nalion of medical facilities is needed in (he community. "A hospital is never enough. We must send facilities out (o communities to be he said.
