Joint Master of Arts in History at the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg

MA candidates working on this project will undertake research related to building a rich historical understanding of the Asiniskaw Īthiniwak in northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan during the protocontact period of the mid-1600s. This research might include gathering and working with oral history accounts from Rocky Cree elders and traditional knowledge keepers; doing comparative research into analogous contexts as identified by the existing ethnographic, oral, and archaeological records; and researching material culture objects from the Churchill River region and surrounding areas held in museum and private collections. There will also be opportunities to research Indigenous archival methods.
