Governed by the elements, the Pekuakamiulnuatsh people have a rich culture that is truly their own. They arrived about six millennia ago after the retraction of the glaciers.
The best place to learn more about their history is the Native Museum of Mashteuiatsh. The institution has hundreds of amazing artifacts and objects used by these people.
Without a doubt, a visit will make for a remarkable cultural encounter.
The Pekuakamiulnu u mamihtunelitamun, Spirit of the Pekuakamiulnu is a permanent collective exhibition made by artisans, artists, businesspeople, elders, and the rest of the community.
It serves as a way to look at their ancestral history, reality, and aspirations by going through their territorial negotiation history.
We recommend a guided tour to learn more about the community. It will be exciting to learn the differences and similarities we have with them.
Close to the museum, there is an interpretation trail called the Nutshimatsh/In the Forest. It should give you a better understanding of the relationship between the Pekuakamiulnuatsh and nature, which is considered the source of life.
We hope that it is going to inspire you to follow in their footsteps when it comes to showing respect for Mother Earth.
