That visit was just a wonderful discovery for me. I had been always perceiving the "Hurons" as being a name of proudness and strength. When playing as a child, this name sounded like the braves natives of Northern America. I here learned that the name "Huron" given to them by the first Europeans actually was hurting their proudness due to... More

Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The meals were beautifully prepared, and delicious. Our host and waiters were friendly and offered ideas on things to do in the area. The museum was good, except that it was in french. The displays did have bilingual signs. I would suggest visiting the museum; it is educational and worth it. The town of Wendake... More

Without exaggeration, our family felt honored to be with the Huron-Wendat people during our stay in Wendake. Theirs is an amazing story of oppression, struggle, and more recently victory and resurgence.
