The Symposium will be held in a beautiful place that is on the traditional territory of Indigenous People who have lived and traveled through these mountains for thousands and thousands of years. In particular, we acknowledge the Shuswap and K’tunaxs (too nah ha), first nations to the west, as well as the Treaty 7 first nations: the Blackfoot, the Kainai (pronounced “gainai”), the Piikani (pronounced Biigani) and the Siksika first nations, the T’suuTina First Nation, the Stoney Nakoda First Nation: the Wesley, Bearspaw and Chiniki bands, as well as the Métis People of Region 3.
