Land Acknowledgement and Siksika Nation Engagement

We honour all the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries. We acknowledge that the ancestral and traditional lands on which we gather are Land of the Blackfoot Confederacy and Treaty 7 territory. This is a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous peoples, and in particular our neighbors, Siksika Nation. Traditional Siksika territory is where we will build our facility, work, live, and play, and where Strathmore resides.
