M. SUNDAYS: I By Appointment Kickapoos of Kansas to Furnish Opposition in Games of Lacrosse. (Courier Special Service) Tama, la. Four old Indian dances, never seen here by the white men. will be added to the program of the Mesquakie Indian powwow to be held on the Tama Indian reservation August 14, 15, IS and 17.

The Tama Indians are able to give these dances because the old Indians on the reservation are yielding in giving information on old tribal rites and ceremonies. In the past some of the old wise men of the tribe hung back on giving this information. They considered rites and ceremonies of the tribe a sacred Indian possession, and did not like the idea of these rites and ceremonies being performed as a sort of spectacle for the whites who had driven them out of their hunting grounds. Now the old men have seen their young braves fight two wars for their white brother, and they have found that the white man is friendly ana respects the many good qualities of the Indian. The new dances are the eagle dance, the hoop dance, the least dance and the grizzly bear claw dance, The eagle dance will be performed by two grandsons of the late Chief Pushetonequa, Frank Pushetonequa, and Charles Pushetonequa.

Both or these braves were in the air corps during the war. The eagle dance means the dance of the king of birds. The feast dance and the grizzly bear claw dance are religious ceremonies and will be performed by a selected group of Indians. In the hoop dance the Indian gets into and out of hoops to the music of Indian drums and aong. Another extraordinary feature of the powwow will a la- crosse game between the Mes- quakiei of Tama and the Kickapoos of Kansas, who will be "among the guests visiting the Mesquakies.

This will be the first time for two tribes to play the gruelling lacrosse game at the powwow.
