Mohkínstsis (MOH-kin-stiss) is the Blackfoot name for Calgary, which translates to “elbow”, in reference to the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers, which make up an elbow shape where they meet. We are using the traditional Blackfoot name as an attempt to both disrupt the colonial legacy of urbanism by acknowledging the history of this land, and to ensure our conversation is rooted in the reality that the effects of anti-indigeneity in urbanism are still present today.
