Living with the Natives — Mrs Copithorne’s Bread

Native American fry bread in a basket along with a wooden spoon

This what life was like. Not only in the prairies but here too. Did you know that once a week that the natives who lived near the rice beds or McArthur Island would come in front of Hick’s store on the corner of Franklin and Bridge and have a dance. Wish someone had caught that on camera.
