Welcoming Winnipeg: Reconciling Our History
Launched in January, 2019 Welcoming Winnipeg is an initiative of the Indigenous Relations Division of the City of Winnipeg. The initiative "responds to the national dialogue to re-examine historical markers and place names to resolve the absence of Indigenous perspectives, experiences, and contributions in the stories remembered and commemorated in Canadian cities." To learn more - including how to participate - visit the Welcoming Winnipeg page.
This section of the Guide shares information about Library resources and services to support learning and engagement with the Welcoming Winnipeg initiative. Any questions about Welcoming Winnipeg should be directed to the contact information here.
Participate in a story recording event at the Millennium Library, where library staff will help you record your story for Welcoming Winnipeg. Visit the Welcoming Winnipeg page to learn more about how stories are being collected. Questions about content for stories, how they are being collected, and how they will be shared, should be directed to Welcoming Winnipeg.
