Treaty Acknowledgement

In the spirit of respect, reconciliation and truth, CUPE Local 829 Educational Support Staff honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani as well as the Iyaxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations.  We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Metis homeland.  Finally, we acknowledge all Nations, indigenous and non, who live, work, and play and help us steward this land, honour and celebrate this territory.

This sacred gathering place provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation.  Thank you for your enthusiasm and commitment to join our team on the lands of Treaty 7 territory.
