An Appeal

An appeal has been issued by Dr. Russ Alexander, Director of St. Labre Indian Schools concerning the need for used band instruments. Few of the school's students can afford to purchase or rent band instruments, and in
years past many donors have sent their used instruments to the school for student use.

St. Labre primarily serves the Northern Cheyenne and Crow Indians. If you know of anyone who has a usable band instrument laying around that they might want to donate, please have them sent to.

University gets grant for Native American study

BILLINGS -- The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded a $25,000 grant to Montana State University-Billings to explore how Native Americans have used art, religion and story to survive and adapt over the last 500 years.

Details about how those subjects will be studied are still being worked out, but probably will include several seminars or discussion groups during the 2001-2002 academic year, said St. John Robinson, project director.
