abstract
Joe Dion, Florence Buffalo and Madeline Dion, of the Kehewin Reserve in Alberta's northeast corner, can trace their family line back to the venerable Cree chief, Big Bear. Joe talks about his visit with the Queen during the Alberta Centennial, as head of a delegation seeking redress for Treaty 6. He explains that he didn't want to see the constitution repatriated without Native rights being enshrined. His sister Madeline, widely recognized for her work on women's health issues, discusses the systematic erasing of the memory that her people have had to overcome. Florence explains her sense of responsibility to her children in passing on family lore.
