I cannot thank you enough for your consistent support. Your office was always a caring environment and one where you made me feel as if you cared about what I had to say. You cared more about my strengths and abilities instead of just focusing on how you could erase my weaknesses. You were excited to hear what I had to say and always pointed me in the right direction.

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.
