Manitoba’s 150th Anniversary presented an opportunity to come together in spirit, to share stories, and to build even stronger connections to each other and the land, to explore our past and leave legacies for the future.
The Manitoba 150 Host Committee invited Manitobans to:
• Discover our beauty
• Meet our people
• Experience our cultures
• Explore our history
Manitobans were encouraged to discover their Manitoba all over again, and find a new reasons to fall in love with our amazing province.
We acknowledge we are gathered on Treaty 1 Territory and that Manitoba is located on the Treaty Territories and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk Nations.
We acknowledge Manitoba is located on the Homeland of the Red River Métis.
We acknowledge northern Manitoba includes lands that were and are the ancestral lands of the Inuit.
We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.
