Bearspaw First Nation

We are called by many different names: Stoney Nakoda, Mountain Stoneys (or Sioux), Rocky Mountain Stoney (or Sioux), Warriors of the Rocks, Cutthroat Indians. Historically, our neighbouring tribes designate the Stoney Nakoda as “Assiniboine,” a name that literally means “people who cook with stones”.

We are the original “people of the mountains” known in our Nakoda language as the Iyarhe Nakoda and previously as the Iyethkabi. We are called by many different names historically and in current literature: Stoney Nakoda (incorrectly as Stony), Mountain Stoneys (or Sioux), Rocky Mountain Stoney (or Sioux), Warriors of the Rocks Cutthroat Indians (in Plains sign language, the sign of cutting the throat) or wapamathe.
Historically, our neighbouring tribes designate the Stoney Nakoda as “Assiniboine,” a name that literally means “Stone people” or “people who cook with stones”.
