Indigenous People of Manitoba:
A Guide for Newcomers
Canada is a country that values and is proud of its multi-cultural heritage. People
from all over the world come to make their homes in Canada. An important aspect of
Canada for newcomers to understand is the history and culture of Canada’s Indigenous
people: the first people to live in Canada. Newcomers may not always have access
to accurate information about Indigenous people. Often newcomers are exposed to
unhelpful stereotypes (oversimplified or wrong ideas) 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.
