Administrative history

The purpose of the Indigenous Languages of Rupert's Land Collection was to preserve material related to the Indigenous languages in Canada, which are not normally retained in the general library collection, in order to meet the instructional needs of the University of Manitoba Department of Linguistics, and the Native Languages program of the Department of Native Studies. One copy of each title was retained. The language families included were Algonquian, Athapaskan, Inuit-Aleut, and Siouan.

Custodial history

The collection was transferred to Univerity of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Dr. H.C. Wolfart in 2003.

Scope and content

The collection consists of ephemeral publications and audio recordings related to the Indigenous languages of Rupert's Land. Many of these were originally produced for language instruction and included teacher's manuals, readers, workbooks, curriculum guides, journals, reference materials, proceedings, and monographs. There are also materials published by missionary groups and religious societies for classroom teaching and services.
