Manitoba Museum Indigenous Connections

The Manitoba Museum acknowledges we are on Treaty No. 1 land, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. These lands, occupied for thousands of years, are the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, and Nakota Nations. We are a museum for, and about, Indigenous people; which serves Indigenous needs and incorporates multiple Indigenous perspectives in all aspects of museum knowledge, exhibitions, education and programs. We collaborate with Indigenous communities in how to represent Indigenous histories and cultures, building on the recommendations of the Task Force on Museums and First Nations Peoples of 1994. We consult with Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers on the care, storage and exhibition protocols related to Indigenous collections. We work with Residential School survivors to develop programming which addresses the history of residential schools, and how to share experiences of survivance, resilience, and contemporary contributions. We believe in supporting and promoting Indigenous languages through the incorporation of these languages in our exhibitions, publications, and programs. We developed a new permanent Treaty exhibition and new Treaty education program in collaboration with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba. We offer an Indigenous Scholars in Residence program; and Treaty acknowledgement is on our website, and is shared before every Planetarium show, Museum program and all public events. The Manitoba Museum offers an Indigenous Scholars in Residence Program enabling Indigenous post-graduate university students to have scholarly access to the Museum’s collections to advance their academic practice. This successful program is now in its fourth year.
