We acknowledge that we are located on the traditional Treaty 7 territory and respect the history, languages, and cultures of the Blackfoot peoples including the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda Nations, and Metis Nation Region 3 whose presence continues to enrich our land.
We would also like to acknowledge that we are on the Bow River Basin. First Nations people have used the Bow River and its wetlands and riparian regions for over 10,000 years. The river and its tributaries have not only supported local plants and wildlife, they also provided a natural strategic base and transportation route.
