Today in the spirit of truth, respect and reciprocity, we at Families Matter honour and recognize the land that we gather on as Moh-kinsstis, the traditional unceded territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy. We acknowledge the Indigenous People whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries including the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai, Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda First Nations, and including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. We are grateful to live, work and play on this land that continues to be home to Indigenous families, culture, stories and traditions. We recognize that we are all treaty people and all have a role as caretakers of this land.
