"This was a man born into leadership who saw his people’s lives and ways change in just a matter of years. He and his people were placed into the colonial reserve system and their nomadic lifestyle ended. His Chiefdomship was of great importance and his leadership lead his people through this time of great change, devastation, and erosion. My Great Great Grandfather, Louis Natuasis, was Chief Joe Samson's Headman. Chief Joe Samson's father was Chief Samson, the first Chief of the Samson Band, in Maskwachis, Alberta."
