Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Province of Manitoba in 2020, A Hard Birth will take you on a journey through history from a Métis perspective by pairing artwork with archival materials. 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.
