Oshki-ishkonigan – Peguis First Nation – Treaty 1 Territory

Peguis First Nation is a Treaty 1 First Nation, located in Manitoba, Canada. With a population of approximately 10,246 members of Ojibway and Cree descent, it is the largest First Nation community in Manitoba. The main community of Peguis First Nation, Peguis 1B, is located approximately 196 kilometres north of Winnipeg, MB. Peguis First Nation has a rich culture, strong traditions and a significant history within Canada. The community is named after Chief Peguis. Peguis led the band of Saultaux people from present day Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to a settlement at Netley Creek, Manitoba, and later to St.Peter’s (present day East Selkirk, Manitoba). After an illegal land transfer in 1907, Peguis First Nation was moved to its present location at Peguis 1B. Severe flooding in Manitoba in 2011 caused serious damage to housing and infrastructure and led to people evacuating from 18 First Nations communities. Peguis First Nation was one of the First Nations affected by this flooding.

Most southern First Nation parents are unaware of their rights when dealing with Child and Family Services (CFS). The child welfare system can be overwhelming and intimidating to navigate, and the lack of awareness of parent’s rights further compounds these issues. In order to directly address this problem, the Chiefs’ Standing Committee on Child Welfare issued a Directive to the Southern First Nation Network of Care that requires their child and family service workers to verbally inform First Nation parents of their rights when workers attend to child protection matters.

The Head Start Program is a Federal Initiative designed to promote the healthy development of children of Aboriginal ancestry who are living in urban and large rural settings across Canada. The overall goal is to demonstrate through locally controlled “early intervention strategies” developed in partnership with parental involvement, Aboriginal children can grow with a positive sense of themselves, have a desire for lifelong learning and reach balance of spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual harmony. This balance will enable our children to develop fully and successfully as young people.

Manitoba Museum

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.

WAG-Qaumajuq

Qaumajuq

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty 1 Territory, October 28, 2020: The Winnipeg Art Gallery is excited to announce that a circle of language keepers has given an Inuktitut name to what was formerly known as the Inuit Art Centre: Qaumajuq [HOW-ma-yourq or sometimes heard KOW-ma-yourk], meaning “It is bright, it is lit,” which celebrates the light that flows into the new building connected to the WAG. This naming initiative is an important step on the WAG’s Indigenization journey, as is free admission for all Indigenous Peoples to WAG-Qaumajuq starting with the landmark opening, expected to launch in February 2021. It is the first time an Indigenous naming of this kind has occurred at a major art institution in Canada.

Of special note is the museum’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, threaded throughout its content. The ‘Norway House’ exhibit details the crucial role the Indigenous peoples of this community played in helping pilots map and navigate the area’s challenging landscapes and weather. To help tell this story and others, RAMWC brought Dr. Niigaan Sinclair on board as their Indigenous Curator. With his expertise, the museum has ensured that Indigenous perspectives are considered in every panel of every exhibit. Indigenous peoples have complimentary admission to the Royal Aviation Museum.
