NATIVE SHOW

The sacred dances and ceremonies were used to be executed to thank the creator for the good harvest of wild fruits and corn during fall. The Huron-Wendat were also doing those dances during different holidays and they were held between the first and the thirteenth moon. At the end of the show, the visitors are invited to participate to a dance that is called: the friendship dance. That dance was used to be executed to fraternize and to strengthen the links between the different nations. Ours visitors will leave the site with an unforgettable memory.
