Acknowledgement of traditional territories
UCalgary would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that we gather on the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7 in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Kainai, Piikani Nation and Siksika First Nations), the Tsuu T'ina First Nation, the Stoney Nakoda First Nations (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nation). The city of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
We also acknowledge that the University of Calgary is on land traditionally known by its Blackfoot name "Moh'kins'tsis", meaning the place where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, locally referred to as the City of Calgary.
