"If you don't want to work hard, get an education, otherwise you'll work hard labor like I did." So was the advice for Indian youth in an interview with 70 year-old James King, Sr., one of 82 graduates of the Red Lake GED program on May 20. A ceremony, including cap and gown, was held at Seven Clans Casino Event Center on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota. This was the first time such a formal GED graduation was held. The event started off with a banquet for invited guests and graduates, and included a procession of graduates who were smudged as they entered the events center, to the beat of drum group Eyabay. Marvin Hanson, Executive Director of the New Beginnings Program, welcomed the crowd, followed by an opening prayer by Spiritual Advisor, Leland Whitefeather. Congratulatory remarks were made by Brent Gish Superintendent of Red Lake Public Schools, Red Lake Tribal Chairman Floyd Jourdain, Jr., and Tribal Executive Administrator, Lea Perkins.
