Myths & Legends


The “ Myths and legends ” activity is one of the star activities offered in Wendake. This activity takes place in our national longhouse Ekionkiestha’ . The longhouse, this dwelling of the Iroquoian peoples, built entirely of wood and bark and heated with three fires, provides a magical setting for this exceptional immersive experience.

Rooted in oral tradition, “myths and legends” activities have always been part of Aboriginal culture. Indeed, it is an experience inspired by thousand-year-old traditions that the evening “Myths and Legends” activities offer you! In the heart of the Ekionkiestha’ longhouse, near a fire, with an Aboriginal storyteller, everything is there to make you live a unique, authentic and above all magical experience. The stories will address several important Aboriginal cultural notions. It is by telling you about the creation of Mother Earth, that of the Pleiades and other myths that shaped their childhood that the storytellers will shed light on the culture of the Huron-Wendat Nation from a completely different angle. These evenings are suitable for both children and adults.


Offered every evening in English or French, upon reservation.
