The activity allows the students to explore the museum and to question themselves about Iroquoian artifacts from the 16th century while comparing this society with the Algonquians nations.

  • Artifacts hunt in the permanent exhibition room of the museum;
  • Visit of the Ekionkiestha’ longhouse;
  • Construction of a model wigwam in pairs.

Exploring the museum and its artifacts are followed by an interpretation, in group, of various elements that sparked their interest. The students, in pairs, are then invited to ask questions and, then, illustrate the answer they received. The guide will also present them the differences between the Iroquoian and Algonquian way of life. Each pair also receives a model of a wigwam ready to be assembled and work together on how to build it.

Learning fields: Social, artistic and language universes.
