National Indigenous History Month

This month, we proudly recognize National Indigenous History Month in Canada – a meaningful opportunity to learn about and appreciate the rich cultures, traditions, and experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples. It’s a time to honour the stories, achievements, contributions, and enduring resilience of Indigenous Peoples, whose deep-rooted presence continues to enrich and strengthen Manitoban communities.

Folklorama acknowledges that we create, connect, and celebrate on Treaty 1 territory. We honour the unceded lands and waters of the Anishinaabe (Ojibway), Ininew (Cree), Oji-Cree, Dene and Dakota peoples, and the National Homeland of the Red River Métis. We recognize and honour that our drinking water comes from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation on Treaty 3 Territory.

We are committed to building relationships and sharing knowledge, and cultural understanding of all communities.  Understanding our diversity fosters pride and mutual respect.

Keep Learning

We had the privilege of sitting down with Buffy Handel to learn more about National Indigenous History Month and what it means to be Indigenous in Manitoba. Happy Indigenous History Month!

#CelebrateEverything with us by learning more about the holidays and occasions that reflect the true fabric of the people of Manitoba.
