Ward Sspomitapi (SS-POH-ME-TAH-PEE)

"Sspomitapi" means Star Person and originates from the Indigenous language spoken by the Blackfoot.

The Blackfoot have many stories that acknowledge the sky and the stars, often called Sky Beings. As for Ssopmitapi (Star Person), they were sent to earth by Napi (Creator) to establish a reciprocal relationship between Blackfoot people and bison. 

This same sense of mutual, cooperative interchange can help us in building strong communities.

Land Acknowledgement

I acknowledge the traditional land on which we reside, is in Treaty Six Territory. And I would like to thank the diverse Indigenous Peoples whose ancestors’ footsteps have marked this territory for centuries, such as Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, and Blackfoot.
I also recognize this as the Métis’ homeland and the home of one of the largest communities of Inuit south of the 60th parallel.
