You have reached the end of Section 1 of the Manitoba Foundations Guide. You should now have a beginner’s understanding of some of the history and culture of Indigenous Peoples on Turtle Island. You should have also debunked some of the common myths and misconceptions about Indigenous peoples. There is no resource that replaces building relationships with people and doing your own reading and research to further your understanding. The best way to broaden and deepen your knowledge of Indigenous Peoples is to get to know them as colleagues, neighbours, and friends, not as those responsible for teaching you about themselves or colonization.
Now that you have completed Section 1, answer the Knowledge Check questions.
Note: If you are not using the online version of the Foundations Guide, you can find the Knowledge Check questions and answers in Appendix A.
