Tour of the Ekionkiestha’ national longhouse

Elementary Schools, Secondary Schools


This is the experience not to be missed in Wendake! The Ekionkiestha’ National Longhouse is about experiencing the traditional lifestyles of the pre-contact period first-hand. This place of discovery is a journey to the very heart of these lifestyles. With your family, group, or friends, you’ll be impressed by its high palisades, the garden highlighting a traditional agriculture technique, and the interior of this dwelling. The longhouse is accessible in various ways: through Huron-Wendat Museum Regular and Discovery tours, the “Myths and Legends” activity, or an overnight stay. A must-see in the greater Québec City region!
