Barney lived his early life in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Calgary, Alberta, Portland, Oregon, and Spokane, Washington, however his home was always the Piikani Nation. He later became involved with his own Siksikaitsitapi traditions. Barney honored his Blackfoot Ways and was a member of the Horns Society and the Brave Dog Society. Barney lived his entire life drug and alcohol free.

Barney excelled in academia and sports. He graduated from high school in 1994, he then lived and worked on the Pacific Island of Vanuatu, coaching the Vanuatu Men’s National Basketball team.

He took initiative in housing projects, setting a goal of adding 200 houses in Piikani before his term ended. Three years into his four-year term, he accomplished this goal. Barney was the voice of the many who were voiceless and advocated for the marginalized population. Barney will be remembered as a strong leader who wanted the best for his people.

Barney lived a full life with endless accomplishments and successes, but none of which could compare to the family he built with his wife. Barney’s life began when he met Kristy in 2002, his true love. Barney and Kristy married in 2009, and had four beautiful children Tess (2005), Payton (2007), Bryleigh (2011), and Declan (2013).
