Stoney Nakoda : Peoples of the MountainsThe Stoney Nakoda are the original “peoples of the mountains” known in our Nakoda language as the Iyarhe Nakoda and previously as the Iyethkabi.We have continuously used, occupied and possessed our traditional lands since well before contact with the Europeans. Our traditional territory ranged from the Great Plains where we hunted buffalo to the Rocky Mountain foothills and watersheds where we harvested, fished and hunted big game and over the mountain passes to the British Columbia interior.Visit the Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino at the entrance to Kananaskis Country and view historical Stoney artifacts and photographs. Large display cases leading into the casino showcase historical and traditional artifacts (display changes semi-annually), and in the hotel lobby there's a 75" digital display showing photographs (with descriptive details) dating back to the late 1800's.  Dine in The Ridge restaurant and view artwork created by local Stoney artists
