Acknowledgements and Who We Are
The materials in this guide have been adapted from First Peoples: A Guide for Newcomers, created for the City of Vancouver in 2014 by Kory Wilson and Jane Henderson. The Manitoba Foundations Guide group is grateful for Kory’s work in adapting the online materials as an open educational resource for public post-secondary institutions. The guide you are reading is the result of literal “pulling together” to meet the need for a prairie-based resource for Assiniboine Community College (ACC) and Brandon University (BU) faculty and staff, with the support of Campus Manitoba. We are grateful that we recognized the opportunity for us to move beyond acting individually and found strength in working together. The Pulling Together: Manitoba Foundations Guide (Brandon Edition) group is broadly based, inclusive, and primarily Indigenous-led.
