Dams on Our Northern Rivers: An Engineer’s View

Rushing rivers in Manitoba are majestic, life giving, and potentially useful in ways that may come at a cost. In a recent essay, (“Nelson River Hydrometric Survey with Manitoba Hydro in Summer, 1964,” (2016).), Brian Grover writes from the viewpoint of an engineer on developing rivers in Manitoba to produce electricity. Grover, now in his 70s, shares his experiences as a young surveyor on the Nelson River in the summer of 1964. Read More >

A Few Things I Heard about Education at the AFN Special Chiefs Assembly

I have to admit that I don’t know a lot about First Nations politics, specifically the workings of the Assembly of First Nations.

Tansi. Boozhoo. Welcome.

Hello and welcome to the first post on MFNERC’s new blog!

We here in the communications department at MFNERC decided that another good vehicle for promoting First Nations education in Manitoba, and Canada, would be through a blog.

Our goal is for it to become an informal gathering place for educators and learners of all ages. A place for sharing thoughts, meeting new people, learning new ideas and discussing education, language, culture, news and other issues of the day.

We also hope to feature guest bloggers regularly, and review educational resources that are culturally relevant to First Nations, as well as highlight First Nations events around Manitoba.
Basically it will be a mixed bag of views and news and we hope you enjoy it! Thanks for visiting.
