Project Information

Elder's Traditional Knowledge Archive is a collection of digitized audio and video recordings reflecting Northern Manitoba's Indigenous culture, heritage, and language. This project has been funded by the Library and Archives Canada's Listen, Hear our Voices initiative and in partnership with the Keewatin Tribal Council. The intent of this project is to preserve the content stored in original formats, and to make the digitized materials available for researchers and the communities, further contributing the Northern Manitoba's rich heritage.

UCN acknowledges that we are on the traditional territories and homelands of many Indigenous peoples, who have existed here since time immemorial. The First Nations in the area that UCN serves entered into treaty relationships with the Crown and the territory has also become home to other Indigenous peoples. We uphold the treaties and collaborate with all Indigenous peoples to share truth, reconciliation and learning.
