The University of Calgary acknowledges the traditional territories of the people of
the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy
(comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina
First Nation and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley
First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
The University of Calgary is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets
the Elbow River, and the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kins’tsis,”
which we now call the City of Calgary.
