THE LIST APPLAUDS Glasgow City
I Council's decision to return a Native
American Ghost Dance shirt to the Lakota tribe in South Dakota. The
move follows months of I ; deliberation which culminated in an ' ‘ appeal by Marcella Lebeau of the ; Wounded Knee Survivors
Association to the Council's Arts and
Culture committee. The shirt had
been donated to Kelvingrove
; Museum in 1892 by a member of
Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, and is
i thought to have been taken from a
victim of the Wounded Knee massacre, when US Cavalry butchered hundreds of defenceless
; Sioux and Lakota. The repatriation takes place at a ceremony next
spring, and will form part of an

programme between Glasgow and
THE TINDERBOX EATERY on Byres Road and Highburgh Road in
Glasgow’s West End has been the victim of some over-zealous law enforcement. The coffee shop had carried its design concept onto the pavement outside in the form of two vintage scooters. The owners had reckoned without friendly neighbourhood traffic wardens, however, who deposited parking tickets on the offending vehicles. Result: the area is now a Vespa-free zone.
EDINBURGH'S NEW LUMIERE cinema (opening Friday 4 December within the Royal Museum of Scotland) is in a pretty unique position. ‘There's no other cinema like it in Britain,’ director Richard Mowe told The List. ’We're not relying on distributors, we can programme whatever we feel will attract an audience, whether tied into what's happening at the Museum of Scotland or not. We‘ll be screening a season of Hollywood musicals over Christmas, and some vintage swashbucklers to
tie in with the new Zorro film.’
Exciting prospects certainly, but can
' a niche cinema succeed when so
many film classics are now available on video? Mowe is confident: ‘You can go into any shop and buy Local Hero for a fiver, but there’s nothing quite like seeing it on the big screen.’ (See Film Listings for full details).
THE STAKIS PRIZE for Scottish Writer of the Year was shared by James Kelman for his novel The Good Times and Edwin Morgan for Virtual And Other Realities. Speaking for the judging panel, Dr Alistair Niven said: 'Our decision recognises two
j great writers — we use the adjective
deliberately - both working at the peak of their powers.’
