An "Indian Studies Honor Night" was held on November 16th, for Sharon, Lorraine and Phyllis Lerat. Phyllis of Cowesses Reserve had convocated on May 29, 1979, with a double major in Indian Studies and Psychology.
The banquet started with the traditional march. Senator Angus Merasty carried the flag and Resident Elder Jim Ryder carried the staff. The Saskatchewan Indian Federated College Pow-Wow Club sang the honor song.
Headtable guests included: Dr. Owen Anderson, Regional Director of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development; Ida Wasacase, Director of the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College; Cliff Starr; Teal Lowery, University Secretary, University of Regina; Gary Wouters, Provincial Government Representative, and former F.S.I. consultant on Education and the three graduates with their escorts.
Nathan Beaudry was the Master of Ceremonies and would have done a perfect job if he hadn't called on Teal Lowery and Cliff Starr to speak prior to the meal.
The Pow-Wow Club wound up the banquet by singing two more songs and everyone danced to the drum. A dance subsequently followed. Music was supplied by the Moonshine Molly Band.
