The Awen’ (water) Boutique at the Huron-Wendat Museum
Don’t forget to end your visit at the museum by taking a break in our Awen’ (water) Boutique! The shop is located at Tsawenhohi’ House, home of the famous Grand Chief Nicolas Vincent Tsawenhohi. An exhibition is dedicated to this important historical figure within the house he lived in.
We offer an impressive range of authentic products here: it’s like a drink at the creek of knowledge of the Huron-Wendat people and other Indigenous nations. Discover a magnificent selection of works of art and crafts: moccasins, necklaces, pottery, and more. Traditional knowledge is in the spotlight, so you’ll find what you’re looking for. At times, you might even see an artisan at work!
Don’t forget to browse the books related to the history, culture, traditions, flora, and local cuisines of the Huron-Wendat and other Indigenous nations and the museum’s exhibition catalogues. You may even find some products with the logo of the museum.
In short, there’s something for everyone!
Just as water is the source of life, our products will quench your thirst for knowledge!
