Recent Publications at MFNERC
In July 2013, MFNERC published this beautiful, 70 page Grassroots Anthology (Volume I).
The Anthology features short stories, poems, fine art and photography by Manitoba First Nations artists, providing them with an avenue to share their work with the general public.
The Anthology hopes to inspire young people to develop and pursue their own creative aspirations so they may also share their stories.

We are very excited to announce the recent publication of Iye Ohdakapi: Their Stories, Manitoba Dakota Elders. It was compiled by MFNERC’s Craig Charbonneau Fontaine, Researcher, First Nations Languages.
The publication is a collection of recorded interviews with 18 Elders, gathered in the summers of 1971 and 1972 by interviewer Herbert Hoover. The Elders’ stories convey memories of lived experiences and historical reflection. The recordings capture a moment in time in each Elder’s life, but the ideas and thoughts should enable further enquiry into the field of Dakota oral history.
