Living Text

Living Text is a perpetual project that seeks to edit, add to, rethink and renovate a land acknowledgment for the Treaty 7 region: to acknowledge the land on which The Bows exists in a way that is nuanced, multi-valent, tender, complex, cross-generational, multi-disciplinary, and ultimately: collaborative. The project is built around conversations with members of the nations who signed Treaty 7, including the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations), as well as members of the Métis Nation of Alberta, and other Indigenous people from across these lands who now call this land, Mohkinstsis, home.
