The Centre magazine highlights the great work of the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre (the Resource Centre) and the Manitoba First Nations School System (MFNSS) with a focus on promoting the First Nations languages and cultures of these lands.

Spring 2023 – Rights & Responsibilities

The Centre is published each season and contains stories that let people know how the Resource Centre and MFNSS are working in collaboration with First Nations and making an impact on the First Nations they serve. The Resource Centre and MFNSS are full of passionate people who are dedicated to making a better future for First Nations youth and families. The Resource Centre staff have stories to share about the students and the impact that educational strategies, like land-based learning, are having on First Nations’ future generations. There are stories about young people being given the tools they need to overcome the challenges they face and stories about the choices First Nations are making to strengthen their languages, cultures, and unity.

We hope you enjoy this edition of The Centre.
