PROVO, UTAH — Included in the powwows for this weekend is the annual Harold Cedartree Dance Contest at Brigham Young University.

The memorial dance contest is named in honor of Harold Cedartree, a full-blooded Arapaho Indian born in Oklahoma who became an instructor of Indian dances and formed the White Eagle dancers.

Called from Oklahoma as an Army draftee in World War II, he served nearly three years in Europe, receiving several infantry unit citations. After he returned from war, he faced the prospect of adjustment to the scars of wartime service and the hardships of finding a livelihood.

He was selected as the first Indian advisory member of the American Indian Heritage Foundation when it was established in 1973. He was honored as the American Indian of the Year two years in a row at Son Hose, California.

This dance contest has been named in his honor to note his accomplishments in preserving Indian dance culture for the enjoyment of future generations.
