MEANING BEHIND THE NAME

The festival name ‘Manito Ahbee' was gifted to the festival through the ceremony, and is named after the sacred site, which is one of the most important and significant traditional Indigenous gathering sites in all of Turtle Island (North America).  The Manito Ahbee sacred site is located in the western Whiteshell area of Manitoba.  Manito Ahbee, an Ojibway word means, “where the Creator sits.” The site is recognized and honored by Indigenous peoples across North America as a sacred place for all people. The name of the province, Manitoba, is itself derived from the name of this sacred site.  The festival represents an opportunity for Manitobans and visitors alike to experience the festival as a celebration for all people. Manito Ahbee invites everyone, uniting residents and visitors in the spirit of honoring Indigenous culture and the seven sacred teachings: love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth.
