Richard LYONS, Elder and Dancer: 1925-2005
Ojibwa leader who was born off the reserve came late to Couchiching traditions but made up for lost time by becoming a cultural authority
By Stephanie MacLELLAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 2, 2005, Page S9
Thunder Bay, Ontario -- In the years before Richard LYONS learned to dance, Ojibwa culture in northwestern Ontario was quietly slipping its way towards extinction. The era of residential schools had left First Nations communities with fragmented cultural traditions. The sacred ceremonies that had lasted hundreds of years were furtive at best, but more often, absent altogether.
"It wasn't cool to be native back then," said Mark SAULT, a director at Seven Generations Education Institute and a long-time friend. "We were being civilized into society."
Richard LYONS was born not on a reserve but in Fort Frances, Ontario, where his father worked as an interpreter for the Department of Indian Affairs. He was a member of the Couchiching First Nation but lived in town and was educated at Catholic schools. Growing up, being native was only something that got him picked on at school.
At 18, Mr. LYONS joined the Canadian Army and was stationed at Camp Shilo, Manitoba While home on leave, he met Marjorie SPEAKER in a Chinese food restaurant. The two married after he left the army in 1946 and Marjorie soon took him to see her reserve.
Traditional culture was thriving in Manitou Rapids First Nation, now a part of the Rainy River First Nations, a small community about 30 kilometres west of Fort Frances. In contrast to other communities, powwows and spiritual ceremonies were common. From the first moment he saw the dancing and heard the drumbeats, Mr. LYONS was captivated. It didn't take long for him to join in, dancing in his street clothes among the colourful, hand-crafted costumes of others. "It just came natural," Mrs. LYONS recalled. "He just felt like he had to be dancing."
Mr. LYONS spent time with the elders of Manitou Rapids, learning the dance steps, the songs, the story that each dance told. At first it was grass dancing, a freestyle named for the way the wind blew across a field of grass, but later he moved to a traditional style based on war dances. Even as he was learning, he knew he wanted to pass on what he'd been taught.
"I think he felt that it needed to be shared, not only amongst our own people, but it needed to be shared with non-native people to enrich everyone," said his youngest daughter, Kathy BECK. "He wasn't political about it, and he didn't have any motives in it, other than sharing it."
In the late 1950s, Mr. LYONS moved to Thunder Bay to take a job as a lumber grader in a sawmill and he started giving demonstrations at the newly constructed Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre. Since no one else knew the music, he'd go to gatherings with a tape recorder. Later, when he performed, he danced alone to the fuzzy recordings of drumming and chanting.
"He was in his own world when he danced," Mr. SAULT said. "He just wanted to show that it is still alive. He wanted to share it."
Mr. LYONS was especially concerned with sharing his new knowledge with younger generations. Like today, children from remote, Northern Ontario communities would come to Thunder Bay to attend high school. Mr. LYONS resolved that they never forget their culture, as he had done. Instead, he performed for them and gave talks at local schools to explain what the dances meant.
He also started teaching dance at the Friendship centre. Johnny PIERRE was a teenager, struggling with the temptations of drugs and alcohol, when he became one of Mr. LYONS' first students. "For me, he gave me a sense of belonging," Mr. PIERRE said. "He showed me a different way of living."
He also made the youngsters stumbling through strange steps feel at ease. "He was a very patient person."
Mr. LYONS taught dance nearly every night he wasn't working. Whenever he could, he travelled with his wife and their four children to gatherings in faraway communities in Ontario and the United States. He'd often drive all night and make it back home in time to work his next shift at the sawmill.
"When he first started, he wasn't planning on doing this," Ms. BECK said. "Then when people started asking him to do performances and teachings, he just started getting more and more requests. He began to see that this is perhaps a calling."
In the end, Mr. LYONS left his job at the sawmill to devote more time to teaching and performing. He also became cultural co-ordinator at the Indian Friendship Centre.
In 1972, he founded the Dick Lyons Dance Troupe. Over the next 16 years, it steadily grew, touring North America and Europe and performing at schools and cultural events. First Nations drum-and-dance groups sprang up in their wake. "There was a big turnaround," Mr. PIERRE said. "I think he bridged a big gap in the community."
When the Queen visited Thunder Bay in 1973, the Fort William First Nation asked Mr. LYONS to organize a performance at Mount McKay scenic lookout. That single event turned into a large annual powwow that now occurs every Canada Day.
All the same, bringing hope to the community was just as important to him as bringing them his dancing. Mr. LYONS was a spiritual adviser to aboriginal inmates at Thunder Bay District Jail. He was also a founding elder of Dilico Ojibway Child and Family Services. "He addressed the region from all levels," said Jerry WOODS, who still works at Dilico. "Right from the children's level to sitting at the table with the board of directors, advising us of the traditions and culture."
Ms. BECK remembers him sitting at the kitchen table until 3 a.m. with chiefs and elders, trying to learn everything he could about legends and spirituality. "It wasn't just dancing and singing, the entertainment of it," she said. "There was a lot more depth than that."
In the foothills of the Norwester Mountains, south of Thunder Bay, sits an improbable outdoor shrine to the Virgin Mary. Richard LYONS used to make the trek out into the bush to pray there, climbing off the beaten path to reach the statue. But it was never the typical series of rosary recitations, even though he was raised Catholic. He'd offer tobacco, and meditate in the spirit of the outdoors, honouring the Native spirituality he found later in life.
Many people credit Mr. LYONS with restoring Native culture and spirituality to prominence in northwestern Ontario. But it was never at the expense of Christianity, the region's more established religion. "He didn't make a distinction between the two," Ms. BECK said. "To him it was all one."
Mr. LYONS, who in 2002 was named a member of the Order of Canada, was often asked to address graduations and other gatherings but knew better than to take himself too seriously. "Because he was an elder, people used to expect him to have these profound statements," Ms. BECK said. "So he'd talk to them in a really profound way, and then it would turn out to be a joke."
Mr. LYONS was also an elder in another dimension, too. Mr. SAULT and Mr. PIERRE both regarded him as a father figure and say that many more felt the same way.
"There was an amazing number of people he spoke to over the years that would come and ask him for advice," Ms. BECK said. "He always said, 'I don't know why they come to me... I don't have a magic formula.' But for some reason, people really liked what he had to say."
Mr. LYONS had already been battling cancer for about three years when his son Brian died of complications from a heart condition in the spring of 2004. On the day of the memorial service, he was counselling other people.
"The culture is thriving in this area now, and I think that's his main legacy," Ms. BECK said. "At the same time, his legacy as a person is that he touched so many people."
Richard LYONS was born in Fort Frances, Ontario, on January 10, 1925. He died of cancer on March 21, 2005, in Thunder Bay, Ontario He was 80. He is survived by Marjorie, his wife of 59 years, and by daughters Verna LEGARDE and Kathy BECK. He was predeceased by sons Richard and Brian.

SPEARMAN, Arthur Robert " Bob"
In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Arthur Robert (Bob) who passed away 13 years ago.
Together we shared everything
That life brought our way,
Together we shared dreams and plans
Walking side by side each day.
My heart is still filled with love for you,
Far more than words can say.
Sadly missed and remembered always, Beryl, son Graham and family and daughter Robyn and family.
