A promo image for exhibit 'Manidoo Miiniigooizowin: A Gift from the Creator'. On a red background to the left, below a large "25" with floral patterning, is the title of the exhibit and text reading "Southern Chiefs' Organization 25th Anniversary Exhibit", accompanied by the Southern Chiefs' Organization and Manitoba Museum logos. On the right is an image of a red and green tikinagan or cradleboard.

The exhibit celebrates the beauty and resilience of the Anishinaabe and Dakota peoples, and commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Southern Chiefs’ Organization (SCO). Featuring objects from the 34 Nations represented by SCO, Manidoo Miiniigooizowin, A Gift from the Creator is a celebration of the past, present, and future.

Many of the objects in this exhibit have been generously shared by individuals and families who proudly represent their respective Nations, and all were designed or made by talented artists and makers from the SCO member Nations. The exhibit also includes historical objects from the Manitoba Museum collections —community treasures from decades past. With both the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ on display, Manidoo Miiniigooizowin, A Gift from the Creator showcases a walk through many Dakota and Anishinaabe generations.

Manidoo Miiniigooizowin, A Gift from the Creator will be on display in the Discovery Room & Welcome Gallery at the Manitoba Museum until April 2025.
