One of the FCSS initiatives that have been
enjoying some success since it was launched
a few of years ago is the Community Development
Project which is an intitiative to improve the
communities appearance and provide better facilities
through volunteer involvement by the community
members. In the communitites of Stand-off and
Moses Lake, trees were planted and sidewalks
constructed with the support of Blood Tribe
Works Department and Planning. There was a Ball
Diamond and track constructed at Levern. The
Community Development initiative also worked
for the social improvement of Kainai members,
by providing more activities such as an annual
Field Day at Stand-off and Levern. They hosted
the annual Kainai Indian Days at Red Crow Park
which was also a great success. Probably one
of the biggest events that happens on the Blood
Reserve, and attended by hundreds of visitors
each year. The annual Pow-Wow has become one
of the largest in Alberta and was featured in
the film production "Dreamkeeper"
a year earlier.
