Land Acknowledgement

Welcome to the University of Calgary. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as 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 Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

About Us and Our Initiative

Hello and welcome!

We are term 3 nursing students at the University of Calgary who developed a resource that we hope will help increase the knowledge and awareness UofC nursing faculty members have about Indigenous peoples' culture, strengths, and history.

This website was designed to create an easily-accessible platform that amalgamates resources on various topics that UofC nursing faculty members stated they want to learn more about. This website includes links to external resources that provide information about important Indigenous topics.

We as students feel that it is important for educators to feel confident in supporting students to meet learning objectives while simultaneously integrating Indigenous perspectives. We hope that through continued education, a focus on the resiliency of Indigenous peoples, culturally appropriate care, and awareness of past and ongoing trauma, we as a nursing community can reduce systemic racism that remains prevalent in Canadian society.

Thank you for visiting our website!
