Chief and Council

   Chief Billy Joe Laboucan shows how to make a "grouse balloon." It is the inflated stomach of a grouse, which in this case contained three red berries. An old Lubicon Cree tradition was to tie and hang one of these in a lodge somewhere, and when a person was caught standing under it, they had to tell a story.
