This series is produced by the Centre for Constitutional Studies, which is located at the University of Alberta in Edmonton on Treaty 6 territory. The Centre acknowledges and honours the ancestors, traditions, and the spirit that first drew Indigenous peoples — the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Salteaux, Inuit and then settlers — to this gathering place. The Centre, the University, and I enjoy the benefits of Treaty, and the Centre recognizes that land acknowledgement is only a very small step in recognizing and upholding Treaty.
