Among the Huron-Wendat, oral tradition has a central place in the transmission of knowledge.
In this activity, without moving, the guide will play the role of an elder and teach the younger generations (students) the history and culture of his nation.
Transported to a longhouse thanks to an enthralling staging, the students will be in total immersion.
The guide will impart knowledge to the students about the traditional way of life. Students will also come in contact with Huron-Wendat material culturein several forms like reproductions of traditional objects.
The Wendat language, music, traditional songs as well as the myth of the Creation of the world will be in the honored and will not fail to amaze the students. Elements will also be transmitted to the teacher to allow the creation of a great creative fresco in memory of the Wendat vision of the world.
