Workshop set on Indian image The drunken Indian stereo- type perceived by the public is the result of a few Indian alco- holics who live in cities and not on reserves. And the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta's federally financed Local Incen- tives Program will hold a three- day workshop Nov. 17 through 19 to see what can be done to clean up the image. The workshop, the first of three to be held in southern Alberta this fall, will channel its efforts into seeking alterna- tive ways of getting the city- vited to attend the workshop include: Alberta Senior Court Judge C. H. Rolf, of Edmon- ton, Provincial Court Judge L. W.

An all-native panel compris- ing resource persons from. Blackfoct, Blood and Peigan re- serves, Calgary and Edmonton will also attend.

Mr. Hurlburt graduated from high school in Milk Hiver, start- ed-in 1847 as a livestock buyer trainee in Lethbridge and now owns an auction company and is a shareholder in a trailer manufacturing company and a fcedlot.

If elected, Mr. Hurlhurt said he would work to make the Lethbridge area the "biggest livestock raising and process- ing area in Canada." From increased business in this area, would flow the need for a highway through the Crowsnest Pass to the West Coast comparable to the Rogers Pass, he said. "We haven't scratched the surface of the agricultural po- tential of this area yet."

The family's house, a single storey two bedroom wooden dwelling in which the Low Horn family had been living for 22 years, burned to the ground last Sunday. It was located near the Senator Gladstone Hall on the Blood reserve. It was a sleeping Low Horn family that was caught un- aware during the wee hours Sunday when the oil heater ex- ploded. Evidently the family attempt- ed to douse the flames with water, but water mixed with oil only spread the fire more rapidly. The fire which levelled the Some local dipute over teachers' move for power building, left the 11-member family with only the clothes on their backs.

The ATA presented a brief to the government asking that they be given the responsibility of certifying teachers and de- termining whether a teacher is competent.

"I definitely think it is lime teachers had more say in these said Dr. Larson. "I would think that local boards would also have something to say here too." Mr. Kimmitt agreed that tea- chers have earned the right to become more involved in cer- tification and competency but government should also have a piece of the action.
