The Citadel Theatre acknowledges that the land on which it gathers is Treaty No. 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground and home of the First Nations, including both the treaty signatories – Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stony and Cree-Iroquois – as well as other Indigenous peoples, such as the Blackfoot and Métis, who occupied this land. The Citadel extends its appreciation for the opportunity to live, create and perform on this territory.
