KWE! Meet with Indigenous Peoples

From Friday, June 18, 2021 to Sunday, July 4, 2021 June 18, 2021 July 4, 2021 Auberge Saint-Antoine

A unique exhibition at ExpoCité's Place Jean-Béliveau

For 17 days, KWE! Meet with Indigenous Peoples invites people to dive into the Aboriginal universe through a unique exhibition, created from scratch to fit sanitary measures, in complete safety. Through attractive panels and a giant map, each of the Nations will be presented and visitors will be able to learn more about the different locations of the communities throughout the territory. They will also be able to admire the large shaputuan in which they will be able to hear the sounds of the 11 Aboriginal languages. They will be able to see the metashanshuap, another traditional dwelling that will recall the elements of nature, in sound.

Meet the flavours at the Grand Marché

In collaboration with Tourisme Autochtone Québec, the festival proposes a gourmet rendez-vous combining discovery, meeting and sharing at the Grand Marché de Québec! There will be three thematic kiosks on hunting, fishing and gathering, whose culinary offer will be orchestrated by a local chef and an Aboriginal speaker. Stéphane Modat (Le Clan) will be in charge of the hunting theme, François-Emmanuel Nicol (La Tanière) will be in charge of fishing and Arnaud Marchand (Chez Boulay) will be in charge of the gathering portion.

Major virtual events

A rich virtual program will be deployed on the Facebook page and the YouTube channel of KWE! Encountering Aboriginal Peoples. Filmed in Wendake, demonstrations of know-how in the form of video clips will be published on social networks and the KWE! website. Internet users will be able to learn about hare preparation and moccasin making with Cécile Rankin from the Anishnabe Nation, bustard cooking with Angélique Malec from the Innu Nation, porcupine quill jewelry making with Isabelle Sioui from the Huron-Wendat Nation, the making of dream catchers with Natacha Rankin Tanguay and Noémie Bélanger from the Anishnabe Nation, the making of black ash baskets with Johanne Lachapelle from the Abenaki Nation as well as the history of throat singing by Annie Baron and Piatsi Magniuk from the Inuit Nation.
