Dandy Amos is fifth generation living on the Stoney Nakoda lands. He says that Stoney reserve translates to mean ‘only for the horse pastures’. He shares a story about the Stoney people living along the mountains and of the Kananaski Lake wild horse story.

Dandy also shared his grandfather’s caution to him. He was told not to go to school every day, in fear of losing his own Stoney language and culture.
