History / Biographical
Everett Soop, 1943-2001, was born on the Blood reserve in southern Alberta. From a young age he was incapacitated by muscular dystrophy. He studied at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary in 1964, then spent a year at Brigham Young University, Utah, USA. He then studied journalism at Calgary's Mount Royal College, and spent two years at the University of Lethbridge, during which time he took summer courses at the Banff School of Fine Arts. In 1968 he was hired by the newly-launched Kainai News newspaper to draw political cartoons and write columns. From 1976 to 1982 he wrote a regular column called "Gitskenip" (You Know). He served on the Blood Tribal Council from 1982 to 1986. He was unemployed and in poor health from 1986 to 1989, but in 1990 briefly resumed working as a cartoonist for Kainai News. His cartoons and writings are noted for satirizing not only government agencies and their treatment of natives, but also the foibles of his own people. Three books of his works have been published, the first a selection of his cartoons, Soop Take a Bow / Everett Soop. - Stand Off, Alberta : Indian News Media Society, 1979; Another Bowl of Soop; and the last a selection of both his columns and cartoons, I See My Tribe is Still Behind Me / Everett Soop, edited and intro. by Hugh A. Dempsey. - Calgary : Glenbow Museum, 1990. See also the documentary Soop on Wheels / Two Wheels Production. -- Toronto : Ashland, 1998.

History / Biographical
Lester Samuel and Lloyd Handley were the sons of Roy Ingram and Lena Mae Handley [nee Koenen]. The family farmed in the Turin district, and the boys were educated in the Turin School. In 1930 they began to play at dances held in the Turin School. The original band members were Lester (fiddle), Lloyd (banjo) and their cousin Irene Matthews (piano). In the early 1930s the band was hired to play at an Iron Springs Hall Company dance. Irene Matthews left the group about this time, but Gilbert Haynes (piano), Bill Mehlen (guitar) and Bob Green (violin) joined the band. The new group was named The Homesteader Five. The Homesteader Five, renamed Handley’s Oldtimers by 1949, became popular performers in the 1940s and 1950s as old time dance clubs were formed throughout southern Alberta. The band played music for the two-step, polka, square dance, waltz and other dances. In the 1940s Corne Martens (drums) joined the group, as did Reg Romaniuk (accordion) and Barb Renfrow (keyboard). In the 1950s Jerry Hammond (guitar and square dance caller) rounded out the band. Among the band’s accomplishments, Handley’s Oldtimers played the annual ball of the Pioneers Pemmican Club for over 30 years. In later years family members played with the band, including Lester’s children Melody (piano) and Roger (accordion), and daughter-in-law Catherine (drums). Other musicians who played with the band in more recent years included Norman Grover (drums), John Wiebe (guitar), Stan Keeling (piano) and Ken Krogman (violin).
