S. PHONE 328-7121 Now Arriving: THE NEW EUROPEAN FALl EYE FASHIONS for 1973 million owed Indian Treaty 7 to be discussed By RUDY IIAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Nearly a century after Treaty 7 was signed between Alberta's Blackfoot Indians and the Crown, the government is ready to talk seriously about upholding it. On Sept. 29 Indian Claims Commisioner Dr. Lloyd Bar- ber and five southern Alberta Indian leaders will meet to dis- cuss a provbion in the 1877 treaty which stales the Indians are entitled to per year for ammunition money. The treaty also provided for the perpetual payment of the mon- ey whether ammunition was needed or not. Two previous meetings to dis- cus the claim wore postponed by the federal government be- cause its investigations had not been completed. A. Webster Macdonald, Sr., the Blackfot band lawyer, said in a letter to Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien March: "It has come to the attention of the Indian bands that the fed- eral government cannot pro- duce any records to prove thai the ammunition money has been paid either in whole or in part, and they hereby demand that their claim, with interest, be paid forthwith." The Blackfoot, Blood, Peigan. Sarcee and Stony bands are claiming about million accrued ammunition allow anccs. In January, Commisioner Barber upheld the argument hat the money had not been paid. In addition, he also igreed to recommend to Otta- va that Indians be given full documentation of a long list of complaints involving land sales, mineral rights, and road allow- ances. Dr. Barber also recommend- ed that Indians be given re- Jarding: the sale of right of way to the CPU; mining and sale of coal on the reserve by "persons The sale of more than acres of reserve land without compensation; expropriation of land for highways without com- pensation; the accounting of all money the Crown as trustee re- ceived for the Blackfoot from 1877 to 1960; and a full account- ing for the sale of all timber, coal and land and the proceeds from 1877 to 1960. Mr. Macdonald said the In- dians have only a 40-60 chance of winning their ammunition claim. As for the reduced claim of million instead of the esti- mated million actually out- standing, Mr. Macdonald said the claim probably would not go to court because of political pressures which could result. The lawyer said the outcome o! the ammunition claim could have a great affect on Indians across the country. "Those treaties have holes miles he said.
