Indigenous museums and cultural sites: places of living heritage

Indigenous museums and cultural sites are living spaces, places to be proud of, where the sharing of traditions, knowledge and experiences is highlighted. Each in its own way, they offer a place of exchange between peoples, a bridge between ancestral cultures, a vibrant present and a promising future.

The Pow-Wow Trail, Indigenous festivals and events

Pow-Wows and Indigenous festivals are essential moments of gathering and sharing. These events are open to all and are a celebration of cultural pride for all ages. They offer Indigenous communities the opportunity to get together, share good times and trade knowledge.

Adventure is in our nature!

Immense and diverse, Quebec's natural environments, for thousands of years, were the places where the First Peoples lived and subsisted. Today, Indigenous people continue to cultivate a close link with the great outdoors and have become true guides to discovering it. Ancestral forests, clear streams or steep mountains: anyone who loves an adventure in nature has numerous options to explore. Why not rediscover nature through an authentic Indigenous experience?
