Elder Casey Eagle Speaker (Blood Tribe of the Blackfoot Confederation) : Welcome to Territory


Welcome to the University of Calgary. The Canadian Political Science Association would like to acknowledge that our conference is taking place on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuu T’ina, and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations. The University of Calgary is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Mohkinstsis” which is now called the City of Calgary. The City of Calgary is also home to Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

Mention importante
Bienvenue à l’University of Calgary. L’Association canadienne de science politique tient à souligner que notre congrès se déroule sur les territoires traditionnels des Pieds-Noirs et des peuples de la région du Traité no 7 du sud de l’Alberta, qui incluent les Premières Nations Siksika, Piikuni, Kainai, Tsuu T’ina et Stoney Nakoda. L’University of Calgary est située sur un terrain adjacent aux confluents de la rivière Bow et de la rivière Elbow ; le nom traditionnel de cet endroit pour les Pieds-Noirs est « Mohkinstsis » – aujourd’hui la ville de Calgary. Calgary abrite aussi la Métis Nation of Alberta, région III.
