Community Connection Program

Are you interested in learning more about Indigenous cultures?

The Community Connection Program provides opportunities to learn about Indigenous languages, cultures and peoples in Manitoba and promotes engagement with our Heritage Collection and The Peoples Library materials. The program is delivered through partnerships, activities, workshops, presentations, tours, and displays.

Our in-person activities include:

  • weekly Language Table and Crafting Sessions;

  • yearly workshops, on art and crafting techniques, family language classes, teacher training, traditional medicines and food preparation;

  • presentations on Indigenous Peoples of Manitoba, Treaty Relationships, Traditional Parenting, Indigenous Education, Cultural Reclamation, Traditional Games and Language Learning Activities; and,

  • tours of MICEC, our heritage collection, our programs and resources, for individuals and groups.*

*MICEC is currently closed to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are transitioning to online program delivery, please follow us on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram and join us on Facebook live for MICEC Online (clips from our past episodes will be available on our YouTube channel). Our 2021 summer events calendar will be available June 21 on our website.
