My Indian Dress
Hi. My name is Christine Leigh Ward and my name in Micmac is
Klistian and, that is what the elders call me. I'm 13 years old and I live
in Eel Ground and my family is Micmac and sometimes my grandmother talks
to me in Micmac.
My best pow wow thought that I can think of is when my aunti gave
me my Indian dress. She talked on the speaker and said would
Klistian Leigh Ward come here. I have something for you. And
that is when she gave me my Indian dress and I loved that so much
I was proud of then I was honoured when I got that I was so proud I
raced home and put it on and raced back down to the pow wow
and danced my little heart out.
It was so much fun and I used to
camp out on the pow wow grounds it was fun I miss the pow wow I
never went to the pow wow this year I was at cadet camp in Greenwood, N.S. and then I went to bible camp so I missed it I miss
dancing and every thing and next year I'm getting a new Indian dress
for the pow wow my grandmother and some other elders are
making me one. It is going to be cool. Well thank you for your
time and I hope you liked my short story. Bye.
