MORLEY (CP) Stony Indian chief John Snow accused the Alberta govern- ment Monday of delaying a de- cision on a treaty land claim, aand said the delay has forced virtually all members of one of the tribe's bands on to welfare rolls. Chief Snow told three tour- ing Alberta cabinet Min- isters Bill Yurko, Con- sumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling and Highways Minister Clarence until the government turns over acres of land in the Kootenay Plains area of central Al- berta to the band, many In- dians will be without any form of livelihood. He will meet Friday with Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed to discuss the settlement, which was approved one year ago by the federal government as a valid treaty claim. Chief Snow said the provin- cially-approved construction of a power generating station on the Big Horn River resulted in the flooding of 27 square miles of the reserve when the dam was built, including what he described as the reserve's best hay land. He said the province had not compensated the Indians for the loss. FARRAGUT WAS FIRST David Glasgow Farragut became the United States Navy's first admiral in 1886. The band, using a federal grant, researched its treaty rights and claimed 000 acres from the federal government in compensation for the iost lands. After a year's study, the federal government ruled that the claim was valid and that the Indians had a right to the land. The Alberta government was asked by Ottawa to turn over Crown land to the Indians under terms of the transfer of federal Crown land to the province. The agreement stipulated that if a claim by treaty In- dians was upheld, the provin- cial government would turn the land back to the Indians. The land, located near Rocky Mountain House, is rich in mineral resources posed the Indians' claim and is considered prime because they fear it will touristland. detract from the de- Residents of the Rocky velopment potential of the Mountain House area have op- area.
