Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.

Natoysopoyiis Resource Centre

Located on the main floor of the Senator Burns Building, the Natoysopoyiis is a place for Canadian Indigenous (First Nations, Metis and Inuit) learners at SAIT to:

  • find career, program and academic support
  • get assistance with financial aid and housing
  • meet with Elders for cultural and spiritual advising
  • participate in events, network and more.
