Indigenous innovation has taken place on these lands, ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ/amiskwaciwâskahikan, or Edmonton, since time immemorial. At Edmonton Unlimited, we recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the Indigenous innovators whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. We respectfully acknowledge that we are situated on Treaty 6 territory and the Métis Homeland, ancestral lands of the nêhiyawak, Dene, Niitsitapi, Nahkawininiwak, Nakota Sioux, and Métis, and the contemporary territory of many other Indigenous peoples. We also encourage, support, and promote the resurgence of Indigenous knowledge and practices and are committed to empowering Indigenous innovation in the spirit of Reconciliation.
