This tour will take you back into New France's past! Many museums and historical sites will teach you more about the role of religious communities at the beginning of the colonization or the settlement of the first colonists in this rural territory.

Even though the Hurons settled in L'Ancienne-Lorette in 1673, they were made to leave this area in 1697 following the arrival of the first settlers. They would then go on to occupy six different sites before permanently settling in the village of Lorette, now called Wendake. The Hurons-Wendats have become what they are today from the construction of houses and development of crafts, that is an established nation, proud of its roots and culture. The Huron population native of Wendake counts approximately 3,000 persons, among whom 1,200 live on the territory that covers approximately one hundred hectares.
