WINNIPEG From Manila to Manitoba is a new exhibit at the Manitoba Museum this summer that offers a glimpse of the Filipino immigrant’s past and brings it to the present. A must-see for all of us here in Winnipeg, the exhibit takes visitors as far back as the early 1960s with never-before-seen portraits, documents and replicas of artefacts that will stir up fond memories of when the first Filipino immigrants settled here.
