Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is a dissertation on the Alexis Band of the Stoney
Indians in Alberta, based on fieldwork carried out over three summers, 1964-1966. Andersen
discusses and compares the political, social, and economic structure of the Alexis society
in the Pre-Reserve period prior to 1877, the period of Government Trusteeship (1877-1957),
and the more recent period of Band Council Leadership. Leadership gradually changed hands
from the elder camp leaders to young bilingual members of the Band Council. Also the key
social unit changed from a camp group to nuclear family. In the middle period, the
government failed in their attempt to change the Alexis subsistence base from
hunter-gatherers to farmers and ranchers. Education, medical care, and wage labor have
favored a more settled existence, especially among the young and old. Andersen also
discusses the Alexis relations with the surrounding white communities.
