The Bearspaw First Nation is a First Nations government or band of the Nakoda (Stoney) people.

In November 2010, a dispute arose when the chief of the band, David Bearspaw, cancelled a forthcoming election and extended his term by two years, prompting a protest blockade of the Eden Valley 216 reserve by other band members.[1] A judge ordered elections to go ahead, and the incumbant was defeated by Darcy Dixon.[2]
