The settlement for the surface rights of the lands provided Siksika with approximately $82 million in compensation for the damages and losses suffered as a result of a faulty land surrender.
In a background document prepared by Siksika, it is reported that Inspector of Indian Agencies J.A. Markle arranged a surrender meeting on June 15, 1910-33 years after Treaty 7 was signed and 31 years after the Siksika reserve was established.

Little Chief, a Siksika Nation elder and former chief, is upset that the Siksika tribal administration paid $47,000 to sponsor a chuckwagon at this year's Stampede.

Considering that the Siksika budget is $80 million for a population of 6,000 people, 4,000 of whom live on the reserve, it's a wonder there is any poverty at all on Canada's second-largest First Nation.
