Stoney Podcast – Episode 9

In this podcast, Virgile Stephens tells a story about Stoney Nakoda warriors recovering their horses. This story takes place long ago before the colonists came. These warriors traveled far and recovered 5 of their horses, but 2 were still missing. The owner of these 2 horses traveled as far as Crow Agency, Montana in the USA to recover his horses. This story showcases the strength and perseverance of a Stoney Nakoda warrior and demonstrates how far Stoney Nakoda people traveled historically.
