Full Circle Adventures Land Acknowledgement
Full Circle Adventures acknowledges the land, stories and cultures of the Ktunaxa (or Kootenay); Îyârhe Nakoda Sioux, (or Stoneys); the Tsuut'ina (or Sarcee); the Niitsitapi that are made up of the Piikáni (or Northern Piegan) Siksika (or Blackfoot) Káínaa (or Bloods). These cultures have occupied what we now know as Southern Alberta for thousands of years providing them a rich and intimate knowledge of this landscape. Today, these cultures are joined by many other indigenous and Metis cultures which reside in rural and urban areas, that have added to the knowledge and practices of the land.
We at Full Circle Adventures have been blessed with the opportunity, over the years, to begin a learning journey with Indigenous peoples. We are gaining new insights from listening to Knowledge Keepers, Elders and Indigenous Professionals from the various communities mentioned. Further, we'd like to acknowledge our more formal learning by reading many authors including; Terry Willard, Linda Kershaw, Bradford Angier and Beverly Gray
As a partner in Treaty 7, we make every effort to respect and use this Indigenous Knowledge as we walk the land, in the manner that we have learned from stories, experiences and practices, of the many cultures mentioned above. The Indigenous people have and continue, to make Southern Alberta home. We value the cultures and promote the important knowledge of the people who have lived in the amazing eco-regions of Alberta.
