Land Acknowledgement

The Society of Grasslands Naturalists honours and acknowledges that we live and work on Treaty 7 land, and are a neighbour to Treaty 4 Territory, traditional lands of the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, Stoney-Nakoda and Tsuut’ina, including the Cree, Sioux and the Saulteaux bands of the Ojibwa peoples. We honour and acknowledge we are on the homelands of the Metis Nation within Region III.

We recognize and respect cultural heritages and relationships to the land. We extend our hands in peace and friendship to all Indigenous peoples who have made these places their homes since time immemorial, as we forge together towards a relationship of reconciliation, respect, understanding and healing.
