"OUR BODIES ARE OUR GARDENS – OUR WILLS ARE OUR GARDENERS."
We acknowledge the land on which we work from, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, with the traditional Blackfoot name of “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now know as the City of Calgary. This is the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations). Other Nations who are a part of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta also call this place home, which includes the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). This territory is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations, Indigenous and non, who live, work and play, as well as help steward this land, honour and celebrate this territory.
