Welcome to MICEC

Hello! Aaniin! Boozhoo! Ho/Han! Tanshi! Tansi! Tungasugit! Wotziye!

MICEC is a provincial, not-for-profit, charitable and educational organization that works to promote awareness and understanding of Indigenous culture for all Manitobans.

MICEC was founded in 1975 by the Winnipeg Indian Council in conjunction with the Manitoba Indian Brotherhood. It had become more and more apparent that First Nations people needed to proactively work to reclaim their cultures, languages and education.

We are managed by a Board of Directors. We receive funding under the Cultural Education Centre Program and are part of the First Nations Confederacy of Cultural Education Centres.
