Wendat Endi’, Us the Wendat


The French called us Hurons.
We are and have always been Wendat.
Since time immemorial, our Nation has demonstrated tenacity, resilience and a strong sense of identity with the result that today, our culture and traditions are as much a part of our lives as they were for our ancestors.
Over the centuries, numerous upheavals brought changes to the lives of our people. We adapted and adopted various items, manufacturing techniques and materials, integrating the modern world into our culture, while respectfully preserving the traditions and heritage of our ancestors.
Our Nation welcomes you to Onyionhwentsiio (We have a magnificent territory).

Yiheh – Welcome to our home.

The Huron-Wendat Museum is proud to present its brand new permanent exhibition Wendat Endi’, We the Wendat. This exhibition highlights important figures of the Huron-Wendat Nation, bearers of its culture. These figures help us explore the Wendat outlook on critical issues for their Nation, in addition to showing how it has continuously ensured its identity through the ages with resilience based on strong traditions. Despite a history marked by certain tragic ruptures and major upheavals, the inventiveness and capacity for adaptation of the Huron-Wendat community have made it possible to maintain a living culture looking towards the future.
