You have reached the website of “Indigenous Histories of Tuberculosis in Manitoba, 1930-1970,” a major research project led by Dr. Mary Jane McCallum of the University of Winnipeg. Funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, this project explores the experiences of First Nations, Métis and Inuit people who were treated for tuberculosis in Manitoba between 1930 and 1970. To find out more about the scope, methods, and aims of the project, visit the Overview section of this website. To learn about tuberculosis itself, see What is TB? For information concerning the individuals and organizations driving and supporting this project, visit the People and Links sections. For information on the particular TB sanatoria we are studying, check out our project Newsletters. To view historical photographs of tuberculosis hospitals and sanatoria, see the Photo Gallery. Especially if you or someone you know was treated for (or helped to treat) tuberculosis in Manitoba between 1930 and 1970, please visit the Interviews section and consider getting in touch with us. For media coverage of this project and the status of TB as a resurgent, contemporary problem, see Media.  This project seeks to uncover the historical experiences of Indigenous people with tuberculosis so they are not forgotten, and we would greatly appreciate your assistance.
