The members of Indigenous Tourism Quebec offer high-quality, authentic tourist experiences. Visiting them is a chance to learn more about ancestral traditions, taste typical dishes, travel to the past and live in the present. Whether you are interested in art and culture, hunting and fishing, nature and adventure or accommodations and gastronomy, you will discover that these experiences are absolutely priceless.
If you've never been to a Pow Wow, don't miss the chance to participate in these major events that truly appeal to all the senses. Listen to the vibration of the drums as they blend together with the voices of the singers, admire the flamboyant colours of the regalia, each piece of which carries profound meanings, sample traditional and contemporary Indigenous cuisine and immerse yourself in the cultures of the First Nations by discovering artisanal objects and various handmade crafts and items. Every Pow Wow is a one-of-a-kind and varies from nation to nation.
To find out which Pow Wow are being held this year and plan a visit, check out the 2021 Pow-Wow Trail presented by Indigenous Tourism Quebec. Some events welcome visitors in person while others are offering a virtual event. Many Pow Wow are scheduled for August and September.
Indigenous tourism businesses offer a variety of experiences. Choose from exhibits at museums or interpretive sites, nature activities such as kayaking and whale watching, or a visit to a longhouse.
