The Calgary Reggio Network Association wishes to honour and respect that the land in which we live, work and play is upon the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. This region includes the the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Iyarhe Nakoda.
The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Mohkinstsis” which we now call the City of Calgary.
Our work centres on children, families and educators acknowledging community and diversity. We wish to walk together as an organization advocating for the calls to action to be realized from the truth and reconciliation initiative.
In consideration that knowledge is key, we offer some recommended reading for our CRNA community.
