Indigenous Experiences

Travel through Treaty land.

A visit to Manitoba means travelling through Treaty 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 territory and communities signatory to Treaties 6 and 10, the original lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anish-Ininiwak, Dakota, Dene, Ininiwak and Nehethowuk and the homeland of the Métis. Its ongoing existence is thanks to these ancestors and their present-day relatives who continue to love and care for the land.

Outdoor adventures like paddling, fishing, hiking and hunting follow the ancient paths of Manitoba’s original inhabitants, while powwows and other cultural events highlight the vibrant traditions that continue today.

Indigenous culture isn’t just a part of Manitoba’s past, it is a part of nearly every experience found in the province.

Within Winnipeg, learn about the history of Manitoba’s Métis founder Louis Riel or dine at a restaurant inspired by traditional Indigenous fare. Outside of our capital city, head to Whiteshell Provincial Park to walk through the centuries-old cultural site of the Bannock Petroforms, or head north to experience a traditional Indigenous way of life: dog sledding. These are just a few of the many Indigenous experiences you can have in Manitoba.
