Location: University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, 330 Elizabeth Dafoe Library, Fort Garry Campus.

Before there was even the thought of a province of Manitoba, there were Indigenous peoples, followed by fur traders, the Métis people, settlers, governments, commercial interests, and others who populated the territory. Visit the archives to see some of the archival records that sprang from these peoples’ activities before and after 1870. Understand the devastation of the great grasshopper plagues, the fragility of life in early settler society, the power of religion and education, the battle over control of the territory by Louis Riel and the Canadian government. And understand a little bit more of the process of Becoming Manitoba.
