CAOS acknowledges all First Nations, Metis, Inuit, status and non, as caretakers of Turtle Island, and is grateful to the Blackfoot - Kainai, Sikiska, Piikiani Nations, the Dene - Tsuutina Nation, and the Nakota -Welsey, Chiniki, Bearspaw Nations for their patience and guidance as we understand Treaty relationships.

CAOS is based in the city of Calgary, also known as Moh-kins-tsis (“Elbow” in Blackfoot), Winsheesh-pah (“Elbow” in Stoney), Otos-kwunee (“Elbow” in Cree), Kootsisaw (“Elbow” in T’suu T’ina), and Klincho-tinay-indihay (“Horse Town” in Slavey).

The Elbow River gets its name from the distinctive "crook" as it flows towards the Bow River, which gets its name from the reeds that grew along its banks, which local First Nations used to make bows.
