Bearspaw was named in honour of Chief Masgwaahisd of the Stoney Band, who signed Band Treaty Number 7 at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877. It was through Bear’s Paw’s authority that armed confrontation over the treaty signing negotiations was averted. All of the names in the Kaskitayo area honour Aboriginal leaders.
