In the spirit of respect, truth, and reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live and dance on the land of the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy which includes the Blackfoot Nations comprising the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai; and the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations. Calgary/Moh’kinstis – the Elbow – is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3. It is our privilege to share in the care and well-being of this place.
