We would like to take this opportunity to gratefully acknowledge that the Luke Lindoe Library rests on the traditional Treaty 7 territories of the Blackfoot people. In the spirit of our efforts to promote reconciliation, we acknowledge the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Piikani and Kainai), the Tsuut’ina (Sarcee), the Stoney Nakoda First Nations (Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley), the Metis Nation (Region 3) and all those who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
