Kwaata-nihtaawakihk is Michif for hard birth.

Manitoba’s entry into Canadian confederation was fraught, marked not only by organized resistance, but also by deep and careful thinking about the future and its possibilities. 

Kwaata-nihtaawakihk – A Hard Birth will prompt you to reflect on the Metis nation’s role in Manitoba’s creation and consider the significance of the events of 1869-70 in relation to our current times. 

This exhibition will guide you to a better understanding of the Metis, Anishinaabek, Cree & European experiences of debate and negotiation, displacement, trauma & resilience.
