Stoney Squaw Mountain is the low rounded feature in front of Mount Norquay. According to Ernest Ingersoll who wrote the "Canadian Guide Book" in 1892 the mountain takes its name, "from the traditional story that some years ago a brave old Assiniboine woman sustained her husband, who lay sick for several months in their lodge at its base, by hunting upon its top and sides, where there are open glades which still form favourite spring feeding-places for the big-horn or mountain sheep."
