Indigenous People of Manitoba: A Resource Guide for Newcomers

This resource guide on Indigenous People of Manitoba was made with care for people who are newcomers to Canada and may be learning English, but its content is relevant to all Manitobans. Those who are not Indigenous Manitobans are settlers and are “newcomers” in a sense. The guide explains that “we share a responsibility to learn from our Indigenous neighbours and build relationships of friendship and respect”. This guide was compiled for the Mennonite Central Committee of Manitoba. They explain that newcomers may not always have access to accurate information about Indigenous people, and that often newcomers are exposed to unhelpful stereotypes about Indigenous people. This booklet introduces newcomers to the different groups of Indigenous people of Manitoba, the history of the relationship between Indigenous people and the Government of Canada, and some current initiatives that Indigenous people are involved in. Each section includes resources for newcomers to learn more about the Indigenous people of Manitoba.
