Stoney Nakoda: Peoples of the Mountains. The Stoney Nakoda are the original “peoples of the mountains” known in their Nakoda language as the Iyarhe Nakoda and previously as the Iyethkabi.They have continuously used, occupied and possessed their traditional lands since well before contact with the Europeans. Their traditional territory ranged from the Great Plains where they hunted buffalo to the Rocky Mountain foothills and watersheds where they 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 1800s.
