Mount Royal University is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, and the Iyarhe Nakoda Nations of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley. The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and the traditional Stoney Nakoda name of this place is “Mohkinstsis” which we now call the City of Calgary
