June 28, 1968 (:ONGRESSIONAL RECORD- SENATE
VISIT TO THE SENATE BY
Mr. MANSFIELD. Mr. President, Senator
METCALF's and my good friend, ·
Barney Old Coyote, has informed me
that a number of his people from the
Crow country would be arriving in
Washington, and I am glad to note that ,
they are in the Capitol this afternoon.
This group numbers 32 Crow Indians
with their chaperones. The Crow Tribe
is sponsoring this trip for the students
as an incentive to them and to give them
a better appreciation for the count!>• in
which they live.
Some of these students are recent
graduates from high school; some 11re
honor students; and others are sel~cted
for their perfect attendance; but the
primary criterion is that "these are good
students." Some will en teL" college this
fall ; others will be attemptmg to cCJntinue
their education while still others
wm continue in high school.
The chief chaperones are Mr. and Mrs.
Ivan Small. Mrs. Small is the forme1·
Pauline Whiteman-Runs-Him anrl the
outgoing vice secret
Down. All three wives are members oZ
the education committee of the C:1 c.,.
Tribe. It has been instrumental in providing
educational opportunities and enrichment
activities for Crow youth, ill eluding
the establishment of the Crow
Youth Camp L11 the Big Hor n Mountains,
which was a unique experiment in enrichment
a.ctivities for Crow youth- ·
even before t he Job Corps program. It is ,
very similar to the Job Corps program
in that remedial cla&sroom \\'ork is pr'Jvlded
while wo1~kln'g 'ill the Big' :Hor,,
Canyon. This will be the fourth year of
operation for the Crow Youth Camp.
On behalf of Suuntor MFTCALF and
myself, I welcome our fellow Montanans
and descendants of the fir~ t Americans
to the Nation's Cap1to!.
