This is an account of the failed attempt to
settle a band of Stoney hunters and trappers on the Alexis Reserve and transform
them into farmers and stock raisers. Bad weather, under-funding, and a continued
market in furs were some of the factors that undermined the program. The Stoney
saw farming and stock raising as supplemental, something they could add to their
subsistence mix. However, both farming and stock raising required year round
committment to suceed, even under the best climatic conditions.
