Cultural Anthropology

The Department of Cultural Anthropology houses objects, images, oral histories and other documents of cultural and historical significance pertaining to Manitoba’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. There are also artifacts originating from associated cultural geographical areas in northwestern Ontario and Saskatchewan, the southern prairie regions, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. A small cross-cultural collection consists of items donated by individuals who worked or travelled in Africa, Australia, Central America, New Guinea and the Pacific. Numbering some 16,000 objects, the majority of our holdings date back to the 1890-1940 time period.
