Aaniin, Boozhoo, Tansi, Taanshi,
We are Robson Hall's Manitoba Indigenous Law Students Association. We wanted to start a blog to share resources and materials with a wider audience as we get many questions in class, through our social media platforms, and in person regarding Indigenous issues, rights, causes, concerns, and history. It is very strenuous to have to continually educate those around you, so we brainstormed and came up with the idea for this blog.
What you will find in our posts will not be academic content. If you want a course in Indigenous history/studies/issues we recommend you take one through an accredited college, university, or other learning platform. Indigenous people are constantly asked to educate non-Indigenous populations in our history and while we appreciate the curiosity (when questions are asked respectfully) we believe it is more meaningful if you do that work yourself.
These posts are intended to give you access to basic information, and provide you with lists of materials you can access to further education yourself. It is less work on us if we can just provide you with links to podcasts, documentaries, articles, and books you can go through in your own time. We hope these posts provide you with ways you can delve deeper into the topics we cover and that you get to engage in our history.
