The University of Calgary, located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the people of Treaty 7, which includes the Backfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai First Nations), the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearpaw, and Wesley First Nations) and Tsuut’ina First Nation. The university also recognizes that the City of Calgary is also home to Region III of the Metis Nation of Alberta. By virtue of the signing of Treaty 7 in 1877, the university recognizes that we are all treaty people.
