Summary The Stoney are Siouan-speaking and are located in the northwestern portion of the Plains/Prairie on five reserves in Alberta, Canada. Traditional economic pursuits were hunting, fishing, trapping, and gathering. This file consists of eight documents that cover the period from the eighteenth century to the 1970s. Although most of these works deal with specific bands of Stoney, the studies by Larner and Snow probably provide the best overview of these people. Larner presents a brief general ethnography of the Alberta Stoney. Snow's work centering on the Morley Reserve, located west of Calgary in Alberta, is an in-depth ethno-historical study of the Stoney over a period of 100 years (1876-1976). This work describes the traditional life of the Stoney prior to white contact, and the period following Treaty No. 7, with the emphasis on relations with the federal and provincial governments in Canada. Snow, a Stony chief, is also an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada, and a great-great grandson of one of the signatories of Treaty No. 7. Andersen's works all deal with the Alexis band located at Lac Ste. Anne in Alberta, and are primarily historical in content with some inter-mixture of ethnography. The studies by MacEwan are biographical sketches of three prominent Stoney men -- Hector Crawler, Walking Buffalo, and Bearspaw.
