Scope and content

Nine (9) press photographs of Stoney Indians, several probably taken during Indian Days in Banff. Photos have captions on the back:

  • 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Annual Indian Day at Banff, Alberta; Stoney Indian Medicine Man in his medicine teepee [sic] (Courtesy Canadian Pacific Railway)."
  • 7" x 9" B&W print. Newspaper clipping showing printed photograph identifies figure as Walking Buffalo, former chief of the Stony Indians of Western Canada.
  • 7" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Indians, Stoney; parade around village and ride into Banff."
  • 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Four minutes after the construction job was begun, the Stoney squaw and papooses are comfortably established in their new home—with a slight touch of modern conveniences to get the housework done."
  • 7" x 9" B&W print. Caption: "Stoney Indian 'Mr. Big,' This is Jonas Roder, second chief of the Stoney Indians tribe, dressed in full regalia for the annual Calgary, Alberta stampede. Far from the 'vanishing American,' the chief has much to say about how his tribesmen live."
  • 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Golfing in the Canadian Rockies has its illusions. Chief John Hunter, a full blooded Stoney Indian, makes a picturesque caddy on the Banff course."
  • 7" x 9" B&W print. Caption: “ 'From where he sits' This papoose seems quite interested in the goings-on at the Calgary, Alberta, stampede. His mother, a Stoney Indians squaw stoops to squint, yet keeps a supporting hand against her back-riding youngster."
  • 7" x 8" B&W print. Caption: " 'The end of a busy day' Chief Spotted Eagle and his squaw Red Cloud Woman finish their shopping trip by indulging in a strawberry soda. Their eight-year-old daughter, Big Bird Woman (center), was a little shy." Print is very wrinkled.
  • 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Indians, Stoney, fashion show at Banff Spring, Alberta."
