The Sundre & District Historical Society would like to acknowledge that the Sundre & District Museum is located on Treaty 6 and 7 territories which have been the traditional meeting grounds, gathering place and travelling route for the Blackfoot Confederacy, Tsuu t'ina, Stoney Nakota and Region 3 Metis. We also wish to publicly acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis and Inuits whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
