Wendake

Wendake: Host Community


Wendake, on the immediate outskirts of Québec City, is home to the only recognized Huron-Wendat community in Canada.

The reserve, formerly known as the Village-des-Hurons (Huron Village), was founded more than 300 years ago on the ancient territory of the Huron-Wendat Nation and up to this day stands as a proof of this great nation's vitality. A number of cultural and heritage attractions contribute to the flourishing economy of Wendake. Some aboriginal enterprises in Wendake are widely known in the international  tourism market. Through a variety of sites, events and tourist welcome places, Wendake is a proud representative of the Huron-Wendat Nation and of all Aboriginal cultures at large.
