The Band

The Stoney Nakoda Nation is in Alberta, Canada.

The Stoney Nakoda Nation or Tribe is made up of the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley First Nations. Each of our First Nations was represented at the Treaty No. 7 negotiations with the British Crown in 1877.

Most of the approximately 4,000 Stoney Nakoda Nation members live on our Reserves in southwestern Alberta, at Morley, Rabbit Lake, Eden Valley and Big Horn. The largest group of Stoney Nakoda Nation members lives at Morley, which is located on the Bow River between Calgary and Banff. The Stoney Tribal Administration is also located at Morley. The Rabbit Lake Reserve is nearby, to the northwest of Morley. The Eden Valley Reserve lies some 100 kilometres to the south, near Longview. The Big Horn Reserve is located approximately 100 kilometres north of Morley, not far from Nordegg, on the Big Horn and North Saskatchewan Rivers.

Stoney Nakoda Nations Bands

Stoney Nakoda Nation has three bands that are also federally recognized as first nations, so SNN in internal affairs has a role as Tribal Councils in Canada.

Janis Lasmanis discovered that Stoney Nakoda bands (Alberta) do indeed have individual flags, but only the Wesley band seems to have plain white flag. A few photos are available from an event in Calgary. The photo shows from the left - 1st Bearspaw, 3rd Chiniki, 7th Wesley. Interesting detail is that the well-known Stoney tribe flag was not present.

I want to confirm that all three Stoney Nakoda Nation bands - Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley has (or had) white flags with tribal emblems on them. I have (had) them on photos, but I couldn't find all of them, due to several computer crashes within years. However, I manage to locate photos of Bearspaw First Nation flag in one of my rescued folders. I found 11 photos - nine of them show a white flag with the tribal emblem and two show Nakoda-like tribal flags.
   I'm still searching for the photos of a Chiniki white flag. Wikimedia already has a Chiniki white flag in its files.
