The Indigenous Health Collection is located at the Bannatyne Campus in an area of the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library known as Kanee Ga Ni-What Kee-Kandamowin Anishinabeck (First Peoples Place of Learning).
The University of Manitoba campuses are located on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
