STORIES OF THE OLD ONES from the Lee River, Southeastern Manitoba: The Owl Inini, Carver Inini and Dancer Ikwe – by E. Leigh Syms, 2014. 127 pages
Stories of the Old Ones provides exciting new observations into the lives and toolkits of three First Nations individuals - The “Owl Inini,” the “Dancer Ikwe” and the “Carver Inini” - who lived between circa 1550 and 450 years ago (the latter just prior to European contact) in the forested region of the Lee River, near Lac du Bonnet, in southeastern Manitoba. Through the perspectives of archaeologists and physical anthropologists, as well as the insights of noted local Anishnaabe Elder Mark Thompson, one learns about local First Nations developments over 12,500 years and the many scientific techniques that have been used to compile this information. This study is richly illustrated with over 150 images, maps, drawings and paintings.

1919 THE WINNIPEG GENERAL STRIKE EDUCATIONAL KIT – by The Manitoba Museum in collaboration with the University of Winnipeg and Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth, 2010,
1919: The Winnipeg General Strike Educational Kit provides a rich resource for educators interested in communicating the significance of the Winnipeg General Strike, one of the most dramatic events in Canadian history. On May 15, 1919, about 35,000 men, women and children brought Winnipeg to a standstill with demands for union recognition, shorter hours, and a living wage. Their concerns mirrored those of others across the country and increased the resolve of government and business elite to put an end to industrial unionism, mass strikes and political activism.
Based on the Manitoba Grade 11 Social Studies curriculum, the kit is designed to foster multi-disciplinary projects related to history, social studies, language arts, literature, geography and multi-media. Contents include a 177 page book outlining the history and chronology of the strike, a CD with annotated archival photographs, suggestions for student projects, maps, a glossary, bibliography and artifact replicas.
