Initiation workshop to the Pekuakamiulnuatsh culture

Initiation workshop to the Pekuakamiulnuatsh culture

In the past, the Pekukuakamiulnuatsh lived over a vast territory and families were dispersed in several ancestral locations depending on the season. In the spring, families gathered on Pointe-Bleue, now called Mashteuiatsh, to go fishing on the Pekuakami (Lac Saint-Jean) and prepare for the return trip to the territory in the fall.

Learn more while attending the workshop. The Pekuakamiulnuatsh culture initiation workshop is offered every day at the Musée Amérindien and lasts for 45 minutes.
