This presentation by Dr. Ryan Eyford of the University of Winnipeg is an introduction to the founding of the Province of Manitoba 150 years ago, with a special focus on the 1869-70 Red River Resistance. Dr. Eyford addresses how historical interpretations of these events have changed since the province's centennial in 1970. Dr. Ryan Eyford is an associate professor in the department of history at the University of Winnipeg where he teaches Indigenous and Canadian History and author of White Settler Reserve: New Iceland and the Colonization of the Canadian West. His current research examines relations between Indigenous people and settlers from Ontario in early Manitoba.
