Indigenous land acknowledgement

Oki, Amba'wastitch, Danit'ada, Tân'si, Hello. We would like to acknowledge that SAIT is situated on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy. The City of Calgary encompasses a region that the Blackfoot tribes of Southern Alberta described as Moh’kinsstis, meaning ‘Elbow,’ in reference to its location at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers. Since time immemorial, this region was a traditional gathering place for the tribes of the Blackfoot Confederacy. We are meeting/gathered on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy, which, today encompasses the Indigenous people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta: the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Northwest Métis Homeland – Region 3.

Supporting Student Success

We pride ourselves on our commitment to the success of our Inuit, Metis, and First Nations students.

Programs, resources and services for student success are offered through our Chinook Lodge Aboriginal Resource Centre. SAIT promotes understanding - not only of the culture and values of Indigenous peoples, but of all peoples - and provides the opportunity to meet, engage, and learn together as one diverse community.
