The 20 branches of Winnipeg Public Library are located on Treaty No. 1 territory and the Homeland of the Métis Nation. The drinking water in Library buildings comes from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation in Treaty No. 3 territory.

Visit Waniskahtan at the Millennium Library until January 15 2022.

In partnership with the City’s Indigenous Relations Division, Millennium Library is hosting a travelling exhibit from the Legacy of Hope Foundation titled Waniskahtan (“Rise up!” in Swampy Cree). The exhibit aims to educate and raise awareness on the high rates of violence affecting MMIWG (Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls) and 2SLGBTQQIA (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual). The exhibit - located on Millennium Library’s second floor in Special Services - has multiple information panels, incorporates a video, and has a feedback station with information flyers.

Waniskahtan is available to visit and view during Millennium Library's hours of operation. You will find the exhibit on the second floor.
