The land on which I practice law and raise my family is the traditional territory of the people of Treaty 7 region, which includes the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations, the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.


This land acknowledgment is intended to honour and recognize indigenous peoples as a small step towards reconciliation.
