Land Acknowledgement

We recognize that Heritage Park is located in the traditional territories of Treaty 7 peoples, including the Blackfoot people (the Nii-tsi-ta-pi) composed of the Kainai, Piikani and the Siksika Nations; the Tsuut'ina Nation; and the Iyarhe (Stoney) Nakoda, including the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley First Nations; and is situated within the Métis homeland, and the home of the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3. 

We give thanks for being able to live, work, play and learn on this land in peace as Treaty people. Heritage Park is a place for visitors to connect with the history and culture of the Métis and Treaty 7 First Nations at the First Nations Encampment, Hudson’s Bay Fort, Our Lady of Peace Mission, and the Livingston House, the original home of Sam Livingston and Jane Howse, one of the first Calgary Métis families, who settled this land in 1875. We are grateful for the support of the Indigenous community, elders, advisors, knowledge keepers and Heritage Park Indigenous staff as we move forward together in Reconciliation.
