Administrative history

The first Native Studies course "Native Peoples of Canada" was introduced at the University of Manitoba in 1973. This interdisciplinary course incorporate aspects of anthropology, sociology, history and economics. With the establishment of the Department of Native Studies in 1975 emphasis shifted to a broader-based study of the development of Indigenous societies. Questions were asked: What are the intellectual responses to Indigenous Peoples hopes, struggles, and vision for the future? What is the history of Indigenous Peoples from an Indigenous perspective? Today, the Department offers a program of interdisciplinary studies dealing with Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The range of courses includes the study of history and traditional cultures; art; contemporary social and economic issues; literature; Indigenous organizations, health, medical, legal and political issues. The Interdisciplinary (IDP) Graduate Program in Native Studies includes studies in variety of areas such as languages, literature, arts, women's issues, culture, history, material culture, contemporary perspectives, environmental studies, economic development, self-government and land claims.
